KulttuuriKauppila's residency guest in August is Juyon Lee, who is a South Korea-born artist. She lives and works in Boston, USA.
In her work tangible objects, such as glass orbs and metronomes, interact with ethereal materials like light and air to obfuscate any pre-associations attached to the material. She documents object interactions and materialize the recorded images. Lee’s work explores the relationship between perception of time and space, visual translations of objects, and the liminal space where meaning is generated.
During her residency at KulttuuriKauppila, Lee was researching and exploring ideas. She was inspired by the light and the nature in Ii.
