Dec 12, 2013: Small space - big ideas

South Korean artist Jee Young Lee has done some fabulous work in her small 13 by 12 foot studio. While being small can be restrictive it can also be freeing because the work and expense of filling the space is not overwhelming.
Lee’s works go on display at the Opiom Gallery in Opio, France, in February.

Is that 3 feet sticking outta that cotton ball?

Looks like two feet to me. So, okay, we're metamorphosing from a pupal state via chrysalis into ... us. Sigh. I prefer science fiction.

Sorry, I'm sure her art is great, but my visceral reaction to this is: the entire thing is creepy.

Well? Did you look at the other 25 pieces?

The Opiom (opium) Gallery? Really?

My first reaction was ooh, silk worms!! My kids' school's younger classes have silk worms in their rooms each fall. They are fascinating to watch. Seeing their transformation is very awe inspiring.

Then I am sad, because they spin their silk and then they die while poor Chinese (and other countries') workers unroll the silk strands by hand. After boiling the silk worms.

(And, yes, they do look like feet, don't they.)

So many beautiful images . . .

It is amazing what the artist does: she creates these scenes in her studio and often puts herself in the scene (are those her legs sticking out) and then photographs the finished scene.

So, it is like a dual art: the art of the scene itself and the art of photographing the scene with her in it.

Awesome share, Spuck!!

Thanks Calii. (and Degrees too!)

And thanks for your efforts around here!

Yes, I believe those are the artist's own feetsies as she is often in her presentations.
