Boram Moon (b.1988, South Korea) has worked in performance, sculptural installation, and video focuses on the sensory responses evoked by power, pressure, posture, and gesture by interrupting the physical integrity of the materials. She investigates how it could be supported by the triggers caused by memories of the unconscious and presents different ways of emerging retrospection through psychological and philosophical grounds. She received an MA in Performance pathway from Royal College of Art in London(2018).
The title of the exhibition ‘A Forward Roll for Beginners’ comes from the first chapter of the gymnastic instruction book. It describes the basic movements with around 20 individual principles divided within each routine and positions on how the subjects should shift weight and make proper directions physically.
The score of the artist’s early performance was inspired by this rhetoric dealing with the body. She makes a narrative of her work by positioning the list of ‘verb’ following the movements within different environments and materials after eliminating subjects and objects in an instruction form of sentences while investigating implicit bodily recollections permeating each individual situation.
In this show, She will present her installation about time-giver/taker objects and three performance videos exploring being projected into power relations through physical objects, as well as a multi-layered combination of movements connecting the materials with her body.
