Lee Ji Yen


Lee Ji Yen’s represent from a distance humans walking, in escalators, or static. From far, the crowds resemble an anthill and one can ponder on our image from a higher observation. From that distance, humankind appear so small and inoffensive, so numerous and unorganized, and the smallness of our lives and goals transpire the picture. Can someone see us from this height? If it is so, what image do we convey? The artist reflects on individuality and existence, how disproportionate our issues and lives appear to us, human living, and how small and inexistent they appear from a higher point of view, bringing the viewer into a grand realization and relativity.

She participated in group exhibitions including the "Collage of Memory" in Beijing, the "2010 Art Edition" in Busan and the MFA Degree Show at the Goldsmiths Ben Pimlott Building in London. 

    Through a dismantling of space, real space turns into an imaginary space, and the people within it, existing between anonymity and individuality, create a great rhythm. Similar to the saying that "all things in the universe commune together as one," the people in these photographs resonate within a time and space that has no beginning or end. In her works, many different places in the world reappear as a conceptual space between utopia and dystopia, and ultimately these different spaces come together to create another, larger space.   Read More
