Artist Statement

JooLee Kang focuses on change of ecological environment, transition of living organism, and evolution, created inevitably, to survive together. She interprets complicated interaction between human and nature in various perspectives, asks for understanding and consideration of our possibility and dignity through delicate pen drawing and mixed installation. She aims to go beyond simply recreating the mainstream issues of the present day such as humanity‚Äôs rule over nature, taking a neutral view that comes from a broader perspective and exploring the close symbiotic relationship between humanity and nature. Her works are a metaphor for the close bond between humanity and nature, which are often thought of as being in diametrical opposition, or a relationship of subordination, but are in fact woven together like a single piece of fabric.
