“A lecture performance that follows the process of a woman involving an excavator into her life.

If death is the only desire to be accomplished, we who are “alive” are surrounded by desires that cannot be fulfilled. Jeong´s movements are desperate struggles to fill up our empty spirit. Though it may seem bold and ludicrous, various attempts revealed by her transforming body are enough to inspire our imagination. ”Oil Pressure Vibrator” includes a film about the artist’s work, followed by her own narration, and a live performance. Elements of theater, dance, drama film and documentary film appear on one stage, mixed up altogether. Even in the moments of ambiguity and distraction, we notice that these are the very moments we stick to true thinking.” (Jeongsoo Lee, Seoul New Media Festival 2009, Excellence Award for Alternative Vision)
