Wild Studio Installations by JeeYoung Lee

Korean artist JeeYoung Lee creates dramatic installations in her small studio space, measuring 11.8′ x 13.5′ x 7.8′ (3.6m x 4.1m x 2.4m). Though her works are reminiscent of the heavy photo manipulations that have enjoyed much popularity on Flickr, all of this work is done by hand. The slightly claustrophobic feel of the framing—likely a handy symptom of the room’s dimensions—really makes it feel as though the viewer is looking into JeeYoung’s brain space.

The medium is the message: clever to turn the workspace into the work. (Above: “Panic Room”)

“This is Not Enough”

“Anxiety” is a particularly emotive piece.

JeeYoung’s feet sticking out of the cocoon is such a nice touch to this mildly-unsettling rendition.

There’s plenty more of JeeYoung’s rich installations up on the Opióm Gallery website. The French gallery will be showing this series in February–March 2014. I can only hope we’ll see some progress shots, imagine the ruckus midway through installation! [via Colossal]
