7 ways are 7 interactions of the artist with objects - 7 peculiar duets. Common things, once they meet with the artist’s body, come to life, become a partner in the game of pulling and pushing, and cause anxiety by their mysterious presence. The result is a moving choreography of the body and mind, crossing the division into animate and inanimate, human and inhuman, hallucination and reality. In an empty space, illuminated only with cold light, Geumhyung Jeong explores the potential of the body - its sensuality, power to change the surroundings and ability to undergo transformations through the power of desire. Ostentatious simplicity of the show, its literal character and mechanical accuracy brutally reveal emptiness and loneliness of a contemporary human. However, the show remains poetic and amusing, provoking reflection on the divisions inside the human being: where does the boundary between the body and the machine lie?
