Jee Young is a Korean artist who uses her talent and imagination to transform small spaces.. She turned her tiny studio space (only 3 X 6 m!) in Seoul, Korea into a stunning ever-changing gallery of beautiful fantasy.
Everything you see in these scenes has been created by the artist herself. Each one took anywhere from two weeks to months of work to create. Once she finishes assembling each studio-scape, she then inserts herself into it and takes only one photograph to represent each creation.
According to Jee Young, some of these self-portraits represent her response to social repression and the abrogation of rights she experiences in South Korea. Her challenge of the status quo is channeled in these artistic endeavours, allowing her to process everyday challenges and conflicts.
She says that in the challenging process of creating these scenes, she is able to express her anger positively and turn it into a work of art that represents her desire for positive change and this in turn gives her hope and inspires her to create again.
