Lee, Jinju (Corea, 1980)
“Along with her personal narrative, her technique represents the sentiment of contemporary Korea through the delicate and sophisticated traditional brush marks” says gallery director Kim (source: art radar asia)
Jinju Lee: Well, the water is a representation of my mind. In other words, I believe that my focus ― my feelings, or the damaged, dark memories ― possess the philosophical characters of water. Water, in general, possesses meanings such as circulating freely as the source of life. However, when you think about the standing waters, it gets different. Water decays too, you know; for example, water goes into everything we eat. One time, I would make soup and leave it for a few hours, and it went bad. The food waste that we pile up in bags or buckets ― needless to say, smelling terrible ― and throw out, are the very food that people were happily eating at their tables. Anyways, this decaying occurs because of water. Things that we have to throw out immediately go bad without hesitation because almost every decayable thing possesses water. This character of water is very closely related to the shady and damp side of my mind, where those types of memories and feelings exist. Maybe it is like the water, or, say, tears, that oozes out of a certain feeling, standing and decayed. But water, if it is controlled, flows or circulates in another way that it does not intend to. It sometimes flows the other way… projecting a totally different viewpoint. This is why there are scene of watering with hoses, filling up buckets; and in contrary, the water is dried with the hair dryer, burning within water, etc. In any way, water could represent the complex, intertwined feelings and emotions.”
