LEE chae young (이채영) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


In my otherwise mundane working life, I discover subtle elements that are disparate. I experience familiar places that I walk around every day becoming a scene out of a figment of my imagination. Even places around my house suddenly become alien and objects of curiosity. When I stare into places where new things appear, vanish, and become rubbles, my heart sinks. Busy and crowded spaces become barren and unoccupied. Crowds disappear and only the weeds are there to witness the day. When I pass these places, somehow I am overwhelmed with loneliness. There are such places that we easily encounter without giving it any thought but can bring out unique emotions. When the house that you pass by every day seems foreign to you, at that moment, ‘the routine’ suddenly hits us and ‘individual life between you and me’ shows its face. And emotions react. I wanted to show these urban landscapes, namely, the places intertwined with everyday lives, the ordinary streets in between old buildings in unspecific cityscape that are sad and lonely, and at times seem harsh and, I wanted to show that it could be different time and space in the same neighboring scenery.
