Artist's Note (2019-2021)

Yunjeong Lee works to inspire us to transform the burden we face in our lives through spiritual enlightenment and in our journey of Kairos.  For the artist, spiritual light occupies an important role in her life, which has the power to guide, anoint and transform.  Through light and sight, the mirror as a physical medium can easily transform the reflected images.  At the same time, the mirror has special powers for spiritual path, which can transform the journey from Chronos to Kairos. 


Yunjeong Lee uses mirrors as spiritual and material objects to evoke the importance of inevitable encounters through the power of hidden spaces, where vibrations can occur and an awakening takes place between mirrors and viewers. The spiritual transformation is formed at a junction where the sky touches the ground, in space and time of Kairos, and from there she expresses the fourth dimensional experiences through installation. 


For transformation, there had to be a state of cleanliness through the act of washing, which is achieved through repentance, free from idols, fiction, and lies that hold the ego.  And transformation is acquired through spiritual discipline and through the numerous challenges we face and conquer. The artist highlights our collective revival and re-birth through transformation by using mirrors as the spiritual path to illuminate their infinite and unpredictable power, where miracles exist in the space and time of Kairos.
