CURRENT Athens is an online platform for the promotion of contemporary art.

Cover series: #15 Margarita Athanasiou
Soohyun Choi in her videos, installations and sound pieces is attempting to rethink the possibility of encounter as a gesture to criticize the boundaries between contemporary art and performative labour. Starting from the personal perspective of the visiting artist, she follows a balloon seller and a juggler from the neighbourhood. These two occupations are paralleled with contemporary art labour, sharing the creative futility and joy but also the precariousness and vulnerability. Choi brings the balloons and the juggling balls into the gallery space not as aestheticized objets trouvés but as objects on loan, bearing a personal and specific monetized relation with the proprietor. Whilst inevitably power structures and the hierarchy of exhibiting is there, the artist presents her work as a collaborative project questioning her position as an authoritative producer. In addition, the audio-narrative thought in Korean, written in English and heard in Greek is going through a constant process of translations, leading to certain misunderstandings but also opening to other perspectives.
