Monika Grzymala (Zabrze, Poland) creates temporary interventions in space, which—closely responding to the site at which they are produced—turn the line into a three-dimensional drawing. Her works are based on the fundamental examination of drawing as a medium as well as the medium of paper. In order to be able to translate the line into sculpture, the artist appropriated the Washi technique of making paper by hand. The drawing in these new works is the relief-like, heavily textured paper itself.

The sculptural drawing the installation artist has made for the Collector’s Edition is, next to the photographs, objects, and paintings in our program, a special object. The delicate work on paper is made of bast bark from the Asian mulberry tree, so-called kozo, and of abaca, the fibre a tropical banana plant. Crossing lines accentuate the organic structure of the natural white rag paper, and, like a sublime relief, span a space that is open to all sides and goes beyond the edge of the image following five different principles of image. At the same time each these meticulously executed, handmade pieces rests harmoniously inside the closed form of the square format. [Hatje Cantz]

Jungjin Lee : ‘Wind’ Series (Photography)

::

The images in the Wind Series represent my introspective states and thoughts. Out in the field, in the forest, or in the village, I am ready to press the shutter release when the scenery stirs my emotions and imagination. This moment of ‘absolute echo’ within myself travels through infinite time and space. That is, ‘Wind’ becomes my energy of free spirit. Vanishment and transformation. Sadness – yet another change… Wind is invisible and it contains more of inner thoughts than an actual fact or a definition. I don’t try to make my definite direction of wind in my works. That is why I like the title Wind. They are just landscape pictures…” Jungjin Lee

Lee’s work is unique in the world of photography. She does not mechanically reproduce multiples, but creates each work by hand. She brushes liquid emulsion onto large sheets of handmade rice and mulberry papers. Her brushstrokes sweep across the soft texture of the paper and capture the photographic image, revealing a painter’s sensibility in a gestural dance. Calligraphy, an art form the artist mastered as a young child, resonates through her oeuvre.

The series was made in a wide panoramic format on gelatin silver coated Korean Hanji paper. The absorbent surface texture of the paper combined with dreamlike images of the natural world and of man’s habitation within it creates the illusion of movement – an imperceptible blur of the motion of internal landscapes transported by a breath both human and cosmic.

These works consists of powerful yet delicate large scale photographs, each one hand-coated with silver gelatin emulsion onto 100% cotton mould-made paper, using traditional techniques. The handmade, tactile and physical aspects of this process are used to underline the references to history, transience and the overlooked object. Each piece is therefore a unique and original work of art.
