“Places I, or others, stayed remain as images. These places, in which we stared and felt differing emotions, are fixed as scenes. The photographic images I use represent those parts of a place where gazes fell and rested. They exist as a means of recording often incidental, yet always subjective, memories.
Windows play a significant role in my work. Perhaps this is because of the attractive part their frames play inside and outside of a space. The element of the frame is used as both a three-dimensional form and a planar image; it serves as a medium which expresses the interaction between place and memory. This provides a narrative element while also reconstructing, as ornaments, memories of various places located in the unconscious.” -Namkyung Lee
