About

LEE & BAE is pleased to announce the group exhibition called Mental Scenery on Art from July 13th to August 28th, 2022, of three female artists Minjeong Guem (Media Art), Zikseong Jeong (Painting), and Mihei Her (Photographic Formative Art) who represent each genre of art to reflects on the meaning of scenery. The exhibition will feature works by Minjeong Guem who attempts to make a place of mind by reflecting individual emotions and incorporating changing natural scenery into the video screen, Zikseong Jeong who expresses scenes of her will and overcome to live through the medium of mother-of-pearl, and Mihei Her who wants to perceive her identity clearly by placing the time and space that are nonsexist in an acrylic box. In this exhibition, total of 15 works that are interpreted and expressed uniquely and excellently with philosophical thinking by artists will be presented.

Space is no longer space but a place if warmth and breath are added to the space that combines the natural and human landscape. Therefore, the ‘place’ where people and nature coexist always stays in our memories as a humane communion. The circumstance and environment of each individual transfigure space into their place and scenery. Every single thought experienced and absorbed from cities and nature involved into the scenery including the place and comes as the mental scenery. The scenery in which human thought is involved is reproduced as scenery through various artistic expressions and it shows how certain nature or places that artists have experienced is reproduced in their minds. A media artist Minjeong Guem restructures the scenery in mind, that is to say, the mental scenery, with a video, a painter Zikseong Jeong with mother-of-pearl and Korean lacquer, and a formative artist Mihei Her reconstructs it with a camera, not a brush.

The area of empathy for the scenery varies depending on the individual’s psychological state and environment. Minjeong Guem who works on the scenery that the place remembers at a specific place makes the unfamiliar memories of the place into the video. She expresses with a video the way in which the real space meets the virtual space and makes correspond to each sculpture and monitor. Her work is a mental scenery that reflects each individual’s emotional value. A restless psychological agitation and the scenery or place that is staring at simultaneously are in accord with each other and realize place-forming of mind. She replaces the emotions she feels in the place in the form of a basic figure and moves natural phenomena by mixing and converging the actual image of the natural environment that is reproduced by the figure and graphic, then produces the result of the work with new algorithms by setting the time scale and coordinate of the image surface. A new space is created where sculptures and images are in harmony by making sculptures the walls, floors, doors, and other architectural elements of the real place and installing the video that visualizes the psychological experience and emotions of the place and scenery.

Zikseong Jeong expresses as landscape the inner side of human beings that intuits life through the medium called mother-of-pearl. The process of work and results are interlinked with the journey of life consistently. The beautiful scenery that has vitality and shines with the passionate hard work of the artist is never physical, but it is the scenery of overcoming and willingness for life. Thus, the branches, flowers, and rocks represented by mother-of-pearl come to us as a meta-language with powers. The artist expresses a lot of interest in the rhythm, movement, and momentum formed in space, and creates images of new concepts that crack in the form of the painting’s logic by using the unique and strong properties of mother-of-pearl that is derived from the sparkling of pearl. The method called ‘TaBal’ which cracks the streamlined shell of the mother-of-pearl used like an improvised brush in painting, and breaks the mother-of-pearl with hands and place it, and cut and paste it extemporally with a knife as well to model intuitively. This technique is used as a way to keep improvised drawing as it is rather than used to repeat traditional patterns.

Mihei Her reproduces the place that exists in reality but does not exist by putting ‘time and space’ in an acrylic ‘box.’ The artist captures a special place where she was fully absorbed and communicated in her life and the precious moments in a box with nothing missed and produces a three-dimensional effect of space. The place does not exist from the first to the artist and every place where she stayed is imprinted as a place of memory to her. To the artist, the photographing is to visualize the absence of time and space that had already died, and it creates photos like paintings by expressing the feelings felt through the camera in various colors. The photograph printed on transparent film is attached to an acrylic plate and made of a box. The images overlapping each other by crossing the boundaries of photos and paintings show a three-dimensional effect with the harmony of inside and outside, reality and unreality, and two different images, and cross the border between paintings and photographs, and fantasy and reality. Like the title of the work Entre-Deux (In between), the artist shows the true Entre-Deux through countless subtle images and colors between the front and back of the box.
