Since the early 1990s, Koo Jeong A has created ephemeral drawings, environments, and sculptures that examine the poetics of everyday life and the mysteries of imagination. Following the artist’s longtime interest in natural phenomena and sensory experience, Constellation Congress features a diverse group of texts encompassing art historical, philosophical, scientific, and literary voices that offer insightful considerations into the intricacies of the artist’s method and conception of art in which the most ordinary objects—a puddle of water, a pile of charcoal, or a ray of light—are graced with dignity and reverence.
The publication includes drawings by Koo and contributions by Yona Friedman, Molly Nesbit, Federico Nicolao, Philippe Parreno, Cedric Price, Yasmil Raymond, Vivian Sky Rehberg, Dimitar Sasselov, Philippe Vergne, Cerith Wyn Evans, and Matvei Yankelevich.
