This book documents Technical Problem by Geumhyung Jeong, Chungwoo Lee and Jackson Hong, performed at Arko Arts Theater, Seoul, as part of the Festival Bo:m 2010. The performance was a collaboration between the designer-artist Jackson Hong, who selected and supplied various equipments as ‘props’ for the piece; the performer Geumhyung Jeong, who tried an ‘interplay’ with the inert objects onstage; and the writer Chungwoo Lee, who initiated the project and introduced the two artists to each other. The book starts from the middle: as a book reversed inside-out, having its ‘cover’ inside, the structure suggests the non-narrative nature of the performance. The pages alternate between the documentation photographs and the text, which includes a revealing transcription of the artists’ talk after the second and last performance on 24 April 2010.
