(b.1990) Based in Seoul, South Korea

Gijeong Goo explores the intricate interplay among humans, machines, and nature by transforming actual landscapes into digital imagery through 3D rendering and translating them into images and installations within physical spaces. Throughout this process, real landscapes, replicated by digital technology, converge with virtual elements of augmented reality, giving rise to an enigmatic ambiance that dwells on the borderline between reality and virtuality.

His work has been featured in the solo exhibition Contrology(Hall 1, Seoul, 2022), Virtual Writing (Societiet.Sexyland, Amsterdam, 2017) and group exhibitions SeMA Anthology: Ten Enchanting Spell(Buk-Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, 2023), Dutch Design Week (Strijp-T, Eindhoven, 2022), Nothing Makes Itself (Arko Art Center, Seoul, 2021) and Paris Photo (24 Rue Beaubourg, Paris, 2018), Malta Biennale Thematic Pavilion (National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta, 2024) among others.

구기정은 실재하는 풍경을 3D 렌더링 기반의 디지털 이미지로 재현하고 이를 물리적 공간에 영상 및 설치로 구현하면서 인간과 기계, 자연의 관계를 살피는 작업을 해왔다. 이 과정에서 디지털 기술로 가공된 실재의 풍경은 증강된 현실의 비 실제적 자연과 접목되어 실재와 가상의 경계에 위치한 모호한 감각을 불러일으킨다.
