LEE Min-Ho “Invisible city_Strange Site”

LEE Min-Ho “Invisible city_Strange Site”≪Strange sight n.10≫ Digital Print 110×200cm 2012

Lee Min-ho is a Korean artist who has attracted popularity these days in Korea with her unique photographic that cut out modern societies with anonymous point of view. In her Uncertain ID Photo series, she takes pictures of mainly the trunk of human body from lower face to mid-thighs and addresses the reality of network era in which communication is achieved not by face to face but by densely structured anonymity. Her recent Portable Landscape series features the combination of photography and installation. The artist places a suitcase, in which installed a photo of human figures with the background of urban sites on lid side and lawn on the other, in various spots and takes a photo of the spot with suitcase in it. Thus, images in the suitcase are taken away from their origins and lost their particularity and end up to form a new narrative or meaning wherever they were taken to. They have traveled to so many places and transformed so much that have lost their origins, very like humans today, who seem to have lost their identities and wander around longing for their homes.
