1096 Days. Three years. That is the span of time covered by the current installment of the work-in-progress by South Korean artist Ae Hee Lee (born 1982 in Seoul.) In her “Dream Works” the young artist documents her personal dreams in precisely crafted, formalized paintings on canvas and beams of wood.
In her second solo exhibition with Emerson Gallery Berlin, Ae Hee Lee presents these new works alongside the continuing progression of her life’s work, “Coexistence.” The latter consists of a series of modest sculptures, brightly colored human figures capturing the artist herself as well as members of her circle of friends and acquaintances.
The subject matter is highly personal: private relationships and the unbridled reflections of sleep. The result transcends the personal, however, as soon as it enters the world of art. The conscious act of a gallery exhibit, the implicit nod to inter-personal exchange and its associated revelations all transform the personal to the level of the universal. In the process, the viewer participates in the events at hand.
The exhibition is offered in support of the citizen’s initiative ParkHaus Lietzensee e.V. The group is driving the renovation of the historic custodian’s residence which is part of the Lietzenseepark landscaping protected as a architectural monument. Among other activities, the initiative has led a successful donation drive to fund the up-coming renovation. (Cf. www.parkhaus-lietzensee.de)
Due to the renovation efforts, visitors of the exhibit are limited to groups of ten at a time. We appreciate your understanding for these circumstances.
