Abstract (English)

In addition to Koh’s brief descriptions, Reinke offers Derridean takes on each of the works, addressing their problematic existence as artworks, impossibly read otherwise. Heather describes Koh’s work as a re-imagination of the still life, whose material ordinariness demotes the primacy of the visual to facilitate democratic participation: form merely connects viewer and artist in a context that vanquishes everyday habits and perceptions. Biographical notes. 27 bibl. ref. List of works.
