About the Item

"I wrap, cover or paint my body with the same pattern as the backdrop and represent myself as a part of that landscape. With this act, I am building my own identity through the entourage or the part of the world where I live, or where I feel I can call home. My bio has described me as nomadic so maybe this is also a need of addressing the process of constant relocation. Another preoccupation I have in mind is the fact that flora as we know it, is coming to be endangered. I think that in my work, aesthetics bind with anthropology in order to register fragments of my personal and social memory." - Cecilia Paredes

  • Nightscape
    By JeeYoung Lee
    Located in VALLAURIS, FR
    "This work is a collaborative piece I produced with a traditional fan-making master. Each folding fan was carefully crafted, colored and arranged to complete the scene. Using the traditional motif of the fan, I tried to reinterpret the meaning of true-view landscape painting, through which painters of the Joseon Dynasty sought not to just describe the look of nature but to portray the essence of nature itself. Koreans traditionally painted landscapes onto fans and I, reversely, use the fans themselves to build a landscape, thus juxtaposing the relationship of fans and landscape. The woods made with paper fans overlapping like fish scales suggest a self-portrait of a gloomy psychology as well as an expression of various complex emotions such as inner fear and anguish that restrain me. Depicting a very fundamental human reverence and fear toward the sublime, dark, and ever changing nature of the night forests...
