Glow in the dark skatepark: OTRO by Koo Jeong A

Otro, a skateable sculpture at Vassiviere Island (France).

Otro is a daring skateable artwork, composed of different bowls, a cradle and a tunnel.

Koo Jeong A invites novices and experts to share the physical and sensorial experience of her work by “skating the landscape”.

The First Glow In The Dark Skate Park

The concept of OTRO, its ovoid shape, the use of green phosphorescent paint, its progressive discovery, and its integration in the island meadow make this artwork become an infinite land of investigation, that reflects all details like the light, its link with the site, the atmospheres, the dream and the fantastical.

OTRO is an artwork made of bumps: the cradle and hollows, bowls and a tunnel.

This work of Koo Jeong A refers to both definitions of sculpture and representation: hollows and bumps, shadows and lights, soft or accentuated reliefs.
