Spectacular UV Light and Thread Installations

Berlin-based Korean artist Jeongmoon Choi redefines a space with her incredibly eye-catching light and thread installations. Her light drawings and thread installations each offer a three-dimensional sense of architectural perspective, as though the viewers themselves have entered the virtual blueprint of a room within a room. The pieces reflect both architecture and drawing in contemporary art, featuring the most common figure–the line–at the forefront.

All of Choi’s spacial constructs allow audiences to roam within the rooms illuminated by spectacular UV lights. Many of the artist’s works project abstract forms, creating an illusionary geometric matrix of woven string that stretch across the expanse of the exhibition site. The installations create a visual playground filled with colors, shapes, and an immeasurable liveliness for visitors to get lost in. A collection of Choi’s work is currently showing as part of her solo exhibition titled Dialogue Lineaire in Paris at Galerie Laurent Mueller through January 26, 2013.
