New Millennium Workout Routine, 2014
The video New Millennium Workout Routine is based on an exercise program devised by the South Korean government in 1999 “to ensure that the nation remains healthy for the next 1,000 years.” Presenting the artist’s multiplied, choreographed body performing the routine, the video promotes her belief in global well-being and world peace.
YALOO is in residency at La Bande Vidéo from January 19 to February 19.
The artist would like to thank Pablo Monterrubio, Han Han Li, Joel Benjamin, Jan Tichy, James Elkins, Frédéric Moffet, Bruce Jenkins, Tirza Evan, Alison Marie Reilly, Frederic Lebrasseur and Ricardo Savard.
