We reiterate the physical and psychological perception from our surroundings. Therefore, spatial recognition of individual is subjective and difficult to define. Space is linked or divided along point, line, and plane, and light serves to specify its depth. Eun Sun Lee reacts to specific elements composing the space, by controlling and regulating. It seems as if the artist writes and implements an instruction for space.
The entire exhibition space is an installation in Space Script, where the artist's sequential progress of 17 total surface divisions can be found. To start, the artist selects and measures a surface and cuts it into a paper of the same size and shape. These flexible paper walls are traveled within the space, continuously creating unintended partial space between the existing and new walls. Response #1: Crossbeam Slope is the initial dividing point for the entire space after the artist's discovery of its form in the gallery beam. The traveled the surface looks relatively different in size or naturally settled depending on its new location and relates to the original planes.
Lee represents walls and windows directly affected by light, in transparent materials such as tinted mirrors, PVC, plastic film, and Plexiglas. Unlike the black and white tones on the surfaces extracted from the white gallery walls, each of these four elements has different intestate and shade of green and orange. These two colors connect to the landscape outside the window, shifting according to changes in light. Meticulous and flexible at the same time, Eun Sun Lee's work naturally transforms the space.
