Joo Choon Lin: Dance in the Destruction Dance
13 January - 16 April
For artist Joo Choon Lin, a combination of the senses—sight, sound, hearing and touch—is necessary to complete our experience of the physical world. The artist’s immersive performance installations challenges the conventions of human perception: where the world around us is pictured as activity, event, and movement.
Dance in the Destruction Dance is an atmospheric environment designed by Joo. It is a performance space and art installation that features several artworks: Glue Your Eyelids Together (2017/2023), I Only Make Friends With Money (2012/2023) and Beatific Perfume (2020/2023). Joo’s multisensory environment is also an instrument for storytelling, drawing attention to how industrial materials such as plastic, wood and metal continuously change their shape, appearance and meaning in the contemporary world.
