For the sculptures wood of the International Center of Art and Landscape at Vassivière Island, Koo Jeong-A designed a concrete sculpture including the practice of skate, roller or BMX…. that GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!
OTRO is a daring skateable artwork, composed of different bowls, a cradle and three tunnels. Koo Jeong-A invites novices and experts to share the physical and sensorial experience of her work by “skating the landscape”.
With OTRO, Koo Jeong-A tries out the fragile visibility of the artwork, its discrete appearance that tests our perception, obliging you to discover with patience the artwork’s essence. The concept of OTRO, its ovoid shape, the use of green phosphorescent concrete, its progressive discovery, and its integration in the island meadow make this artwork become an infinite land of investigation, that reflects all details like the light, its link with the site, the atmospheres, the dream and the fantastical. OTRO is an artwork made of bumps – the cradle – and hollows – bowls and tunnels. This work of Koo Jeong-A refers to both definitions of sculpture and representation: hollows and bumps, shadows and lights, soft or accentuated reliefs.
