JeeYoung Lee

Stage of Mind


Whereas traditional photography conveys extracts of reality, South Korean multidisciplinary artist Lee offers excerpts from her dreams, heart and memory. She reinterprets her psychological landscape into stage sets. Stage of Mind began with self-reflection; she asked herself “where am I in my mind?” The series allows Lee to question identity and contemplate existence. She creates the fabric of a universe born from her mind within the confines of her studio. Restrained by the inherent limits of the conventional photographic medium, she adds theatrical performance to breathe life into her creations. Thus these worlds become real places in the studio as she stands amid each scene.
