The installation 'Birdcage 2017' takes us back to the notion of habitable architecture, but with the focus on recreating an environment of confinement. With her house/cage, Choi invites the spectators to experience the feeling of finding themselves in a small and suffocating space. To complete the effect, this house allows us to see in between its slits, only partially covering what is happening on both sides, so that the people inside can see those who remain outside and vice versa. Extreme loneliness and impersonal communications of contemporary life find their metaphorical version in this piece. Choi´s fragile construction of strings is a type of perversion of space, of society and of communication. The metaphor of the cage, more than reminding us of the cruelty of capturing a bird for our viewing pleasure, mocks human beings that shut themselves away from everyone else. It is a metaphor of our reality. Text by Gonzalo Ortega, curator, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey On occasion of Luminale 2018 (Frankfurt am Main)
