Jeewi Lee

My studio is my space.

What I do in one sentence: Giving the invisible a visibility.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Being an artist is a proper job, isn’t it?

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I think the “die wahre Kunst” (the challenge) is to make great artworks by dealing with modest circumstances.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Pierre Huyghe, Marie Lund, Gregor Schneider… there are some artists, they just scratch the itch.

I am afraid of … May I change the question to: “the worst thing I can imagine…” and my answer would be: to pass away without leaving any traces.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: Remember the first light.
