The 33-year-old South Korean director and composer Jaha Koo draws on diverse forms of art, among which multimedia, performance, video, music, texts and installation. In his new performance-lecture, Cuckoo, the artist elaborates on the last twenty years of South Korean history, engaging in a hilarious and bittersweet conversation with three sentient, talking rice cookers.
Twenty years ago, South Korea experienced a major economic crisis, not unlike the one experienced by Europe today. The artist shares his thoughts on the crisis and how it profoundly affected his generation, bequeathing him and his peers with unemployment, loneliness and a deep sense of isolation – a feeling best expressed with the untranslatable Korean word golibmuwon.
