JiSoo Lee - Origin


Origin, 2018
22.5 x 26.5”

In creating Origin, the artist draws from her own origin story as a Korean-American. Referencing the Hunminjeongeum, the first document to describe an entirely new and native script for the Korean language, Lee explores language as the cornerstone of culture, and the Korean language as a powerful point of connection to her heritage.
