Jeongmoon Choi’s Drawing in Space
Working with fine thread as her medium, Berlin-based artist Jeongmoon Choi creates these arresting installations. Displayed under blacklights, Choi’s meticulously-arranged thread patterns produce illusions of light and space — a total, enveloping visual experience for gallery visitors. Galerie Laurent Mueller, where Choi’s work is now on display, has this to say about Drawing in Space:
“The thread is coloured and used to outline or redefine the architecture of the spaces the artist invests. Drawing directly into space with her hand, the artist addresses questions about our environment, as well as about aspects of lodging and the role of nature in our urban spaces.
The drawings become project or even projection of an imaginary construction that takes form in its environment starting from a line, a thread, which represents the chronological decisions of a progression in space. The transition from a plane to a volume is just as important as the comparison between interior space for living and exterior space for living.”
