Jungjin Lee: Echo introduces the photographer Jungjin Lee, who has been expanding the artistic horizons of Korean contemporary photography. The exhibition features representative works from eleven series of analog prints that Lee worked on for almost twenty years, from her early landscape photographs to more recent works.
The artist developed a highly unique pictorial language in series such as American Desert, (1990~95), On Road(2000~01), Thing(2003~07) and Wind(2004~07), in which her fundamental interest in nature and culture is expressed in a space of poetic resonance. In her work, Jungjin Lee taps her profound understanding for materiality, texture, and craftsmanship. Working with Liquid Light, she applies photosensitive emulsion onto rice paper with a coarse brush.
The exhibition is being planned and organized in conjunction with Fotomuseum Winterthur, one of Europe’s leading photography museums. This will be a rare opportunity to view numerous original print works by an artist who is better known internationally than at home, with pieces in the collections of such prominent institutions as the Whitney Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
