'It's Not by the Details': Park Jiha and Roy Claire Potter in conversation

Why do some collaborations work so well?

South Korean musician Park Jiha first met English artist and writer Roy Claire Potter for a collaboration session by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction in 2020. This time they reunited on stage at Glasgow’s community central halls for the opening night of Counterflows 2022 and focused their improvisation around a series of photos which Jiha had sent Roy in advance. The photos were snapshots of Jiha’s everyday life in Korea: a cake she had baked; cat paws poking under a door; an eroded shell. Roy used these cues as the jump off point for their texts.

In this podcast episode, Jiha comes together with Roy to talk directly to each other’s work in a way they generally avoid doing in advance. Jiha reveals the story behind the images she chose and Roy discusses how she interpreted them, all interwoven with a recording of their live performance.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
