Photography

Lee, Jung (1972)

Although she trained in photography and has chosen this medium to express her creativity, Jung Lee grounds her interest in language and how it operates as an image. The Korean photographer utilizes phrases, words and slogans built with light installations that she sets within various desolate or mysterious landscapes as well as bodies of water that play with the reflections of light. Should it be by borrowing conversations from Roland Barthes, expressions taken from TV, cinema or the internet or even Dante’s Divine Comedy, Jung Lee separates the phrases and words from their original contexts, establishing them in deserted and quiet areas and thus giving them the possibility to grow into something new and bear a different meaning.
