Eugene Choi (b. 1993) is a performance-based artist whose practice has evolved around the physicality of constructing internal and external structures. Influenced by the body in movement, Choi's practice travels between controlled and uncontrolled states by engaging the body in unfamiliar, yet composed situations, relying on the live response of her physical and emotional body. A self-made system of geometry becomes integral within the object, attempting to achieve equilibrium. Choi completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) at SCA in 2015. Her work has been exhibited in Artspace Finissage (Performance Program), Artspace, Sydney (2015), SPVI#2, Turner Gallery, Tokyo (2015), Making History for BC Institute, 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016), embrace with my mother and father (making sure you are really there), Alaska Projects, Sydney (2016) and The State of Being Three, SEVENTH Gallery, Melbourne (2016). Choi is currently working towards a new work for the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize and various performance collaborations in Sydney.
