Between cities
by Gallery Hyundai
Location: Gallery Hyundai
Artist(s): Yoon Jean LEE
Date: 17 Apr - 17 May 2014

Lee Yoonjean’s photography, remarkable for its solid spatial composition and precise description of detail, finds its subject in everyday settings and things. Lee’s art stars from unmediated documentary. Using the simultaneous recomposition of subject matter and direction through delicate lighting, it looks at the other sides of the everyday that are perceived by the naked eye or captured by the camera’s eye. The concept of the ‘everyday’ in Lee’s photography is refracted through the artist’s identity and her view on realty, both of which are hybridized in an obscure repetition of blurred boundaries and ideas that we’ve seen before in postmodern art. 

The exhibition will show new 12 works from 'Landscape' series taken in cities and the burbs in Korea since she came from Germany in 2003. It is divided into 'Urbanscape' and 'Landscape' which depict current sceneries from the city to the countryside. This is her second solo exhibition for 11 years after the first one in 2003. 'Landscape' series tells that her work is more advanced as taking photos of Korean landscape with architectural composition and fineness.

She has had important solo show at doART gallery in Korea(2003), and group shows at GALLERY HYUNDAI in Seoul(2009), at ZKM1 Museum in Germany(2007) and at the Seoul Museum of art in Seoul(2007). She also participated in renowned Biennale, such as Art Basel(2006, 2005, 2004), and Busan Biennale(2004).
