Bigo (b. 1984) is an artist active in Seoul, focusing on the exploration of cognitive communication between the body and objects. Her research questions how our bodies connect and communicate with the surrounding environment, examining the impact of brain activity, physical form, and our living spaces on our psyche, and shedding light on the relationship between subject and object. Bigo's artistic endeavors encourage audience participation within the exhibition space to explore cognitive shifts like bodily extensions or distortions, seeking to bridge the gap between art and daily life through physical interaction with the installations.
Her academic foundation is rooted in communication design studied at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse, France, and textiles at the Escola Massana in Barcelona, Spain, establishing a base for her artistic inquiries. She has showcased her work through various solo and group exhibitions and has been supported by creative grants. Her pieces have been included in several collections, gaining attention, including the MMCA Art Bank.
Bigo's work spans across performance, video, installation, and printed matter, offering a direct participatory experience to the audience in the exhibition setting. This approach reflects her ongoing exploration of the relationships between cognitive science, art, and environmental interaction. Her projects provide an opportunity for audiences to broaden their understanding of their bodies and cognition through interaction with art.
