Do discover at Leeum what is a weird scene precisely because there seems nothing weird about itself. This program is to look into the ARTSPECTRUM 2016 artist Hoin Lee's work, in a participatory workshop in which you explore Leeum and the exhibition through your own lens. With a mobile-phone camera, take a photograph of whatever you see resonant with Lee's landscapes, and your photos will be printed out and also displayed as a screen projection.

Hoin Lee paints landscapes, be it the sceneries he has seen while traveling or mundane views of the streets he passes by daily. His practice centers on the medium of oil on canvas, which on one hand seems somewhat conservative and traditional in comparison to other artists of his generation, or in tandem with the recent rise of painting. His paintings of familiar landmarks such as the Lotte World Tower and the Hangang Bridge focus on the strangeness of their ordinary presence. Each place he depicts has complex histories but because they are so familiar and close to our everyday life, when we see them on the streets or see their likeness on Lee's canvas, such context evaporates and only the outer shells of the buildings remain - the ordinary landscape. Lee comments on this effect of strange mundaneness through his considerate and attentive paintings. Silent Night is a view of Seoul seen from Inreungsan Mountain trail. At the foot of the mountain is the National Intelligence Service building and beyond it the skyline of Seoul. Lee painted the agency from a distance, rather than its better-known fa?de. The tree branches that partly obstruct the view give the impression of voyeurism and suggest the persistent presence of the artist’s gaze.
