Installation Artist: Jee Young Lee

JeeYoung Lee is a young artist from South Korea who specializes in creating the unseen. Instead of creating art focused around a subject, she transforms her 3 x 6 m studio into her dreams and feelings. What she creates represents her emotions; they are self-portraits filled with fear, doubt, love and hope. Who knew one could be so moved by a single room?

She bravely reveals so much about herself through this medium.

It takes her weeks – and sometimes months – to create these stunning rooms.

She places herself in each room.

“Those self-portraits however are never frontal, since it is never her visual aspect she shows…”

“…but rather her quest for an identity, her desires and her frame of mind.”

Even though most of her art is based on internal conflicts, the resulting room is filled with hope.
