Based on her performance at the Banff Center in Canada 21 Objects of Hesitation (2013), over the past few years visual artist Helen Cho explored the materiality of ceramics in relation to her experience of diaspora and Korean roots. Especially for the exhibition at Onomatopee she delved into the core material of the earth, clay, to contemplate and explore the notions of moving closer to oneself and one’s external world. Cho re-imagines herself with a series of new objects, videos, photographs, and a performance that will offer an insight into the symbolic value and of the poetics of art object making today.

Helen Cho is a Korean-Canadian artist based in Toronto, Canada. Her artistic practice consists out of various mediums such as poetry, sculpture, drawing, video and performance. Cho shows, both in the physical sense and the manifestation of that, a poignant desire for “object” and “image” making. Highly aware of the complexity of representation of objects, their material, and the prosaic yet seductive qualities of mass-produced materiality gain her attention. Cho’s artistic practice contemplates modest gestures and rituals. Narratives are suggested in seemingly trivial artefacts, locations and transactions of everyday life making her work subtle, sensitive yet outspokenly ‘necessary’. Her current project explores the approachability and allusiveness of ceramics that exists between arts and craft, but also in the artistic, the domestic, and between sheer object- making and performance. Cho researches the traditional medium on its merits to past and future as the terracotta material shows both strength and fragility.
