Cartoon-folding screen Ⅱ - Leenam Lee

Leenam Lee Cartoon-folding screen Ⅱ
The significance of our civilization built on centuries of human experiences is explored through the lens of Eastern philosophy. In a series of classical paintings peppered with various elements of digital animation, Lee exposes the contrast between the rapid transformation of human civilization and Mother Nature’s cycle of life illustrated through the moving images of the seasonal changes. At the heart of Eastern philosophy lies the notion of coexistence of two polarities. How such balance of binaries can be achieved is imagined through the virtual spacetime of “Cartoon – Folding Screen,” in which the missiles and bombs that symbolize the destruction of civilization learn to slow their pace and the sprawling jungle of buildings find a way to coexist with nature. The artwork aims to serve as a breather to those who find themselves caught in the giant cogwheel of modern society. The artist also incorporates a splash of kitsch using animated cartoons to satirize our contemporary scene. A goofy looking robot dodging bombs at lightning speed and Marcel Duchamp jazzing up Mona Lisa’s face with a mustache are Lee’s whimsical way of poking fun at the establishment of authoritarian regimes and questioning the very essence of the social fabric and civilization that sustains us.

    Detailed Description : Still lifes provide a rhythm that can move thought. This rhythm in turn generates more still lifes. Still lifes generated by still lifes are therefore not restrictive, but predicative. The relationship between objects under appraisal and the audience does not always depend on fixed principles or rules, nor is it continuous. On the contrary, in terms of the intensity of the feeling concerning the object, the more discontinuous and the more in violation of the visual rules heretofore the relationship is, the more intense and real the feeling gets. The audience does not become indignant or impatient at such irregular and inconsistent relationship with the objects. The feelings that depart from the audience’s past experiences rather transform the appreciation of the object onto another level, one of magnetic tension. Thus, in order to have such moments, the appreciator-audience tries to allow and seek for viewing time.

    Detailed Description : I hope that my analysis explains that the artworks of Lee Lee-Nam create dialogs between many different historical and contemporary media technologies, and their cultural histories. And this is why he is indeed a media artist – as opposed to, for example, a “painter” who is only having a dialog with the history of painting, or a sculptor who only addresses history of sculpture. Western oil painting and Asian ink painting, sculpture, cinema and TV, metal, water, light, electricity – these are just some of the media one encounters in Lee’s art. So when you are enjoying his works, don’t try to reduce them to any binary opposition, but instead try consider all the different worlds they bring together. 「Media Art of Lee Lee-Nam」 Lev Manovich -Media Theorist
