Photographs Of Trees In Front Of Canvas Backdrops Turn Nature Into Art

Myoung Ho Lee, with the aid of assistants, cranes, and ropes, places blank white canvases behind trees in various natural settings throughout South Korea– in order to bring a part of the background into the foreground. According to The New York Times, the artist only digitally retouches “the trace of his own hand” because “If the mechanics of the artwork were visible, it would be easier for people to recognize the scale and the method … I want to hide them, to infuse a magical and vague aspect to my work, so that viewers may question and try to find answers themselves.”

Riding through a snow storm is always going to be hard, Big, dense flakes hitting your eyes, puddles in your shoes and cold creeping into your core. It’s never going to be easy but it does help knowing we had a homemade fish soup on the other side when we peeled off our kit.

This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. I’m also exploring appropriation myself, and discovering the carying degrees of it within this visual conversation.

I’d like to make this a long term exploration, with a lot more participants as a form of generation-wide debate. If you’d like to be photographed to add your point of view, please do not hesitate to pop me a message here or an email at sanaahamid@yahoo.com and we could work something out!
