Let Us Dance, Paris 2016

Let Us Dance is a collaboration between the artist and young female street dancers in their teens or 20s, selected individually and directly from Le Centquatre, Paris.

The artist offers space and time for the girls to dance, the girls are given the opportunity to create the artwork on their own. Here the completion of the work is entirely left in the girls’ hands. Hierarchy and the authorship of the artist as well as the artwork and the role of art in the current socio-political climate are questioned through a vibrant piece of dance.

Let Us Dance was first introduced in PLATEAU, Seoul in 2014, and is revived by a different group of participants in Paris as part of South Korea Guest of Honour, Art Paris Art Fair 2016. Let Us Dance was kindly supported by NAVER.
