We live in a time in which cultural transformation happens very quickly on a global scale. Transportation increasingly facilitates global interchange and opens the door to other cultures. People are also much more likely to leave their own environment when they feel attracted to a different one. The changing of environments impacts individuals in numerous ways.
Jungmin Lee is interested in the effects of globalisation on the stability of cultural symbols. Superimposing and merging images such as the coniferous greenery abundant in Dutch gardens and the tulip, now intertwined with Dutch culture but native to North African and Eurasian countries, Jungmin visually reconstructs cultural assimilation.
Jungmin Lee (b. 1985, South Korea) lives and works in Seoul. His work has been exhibited in The Netherlands and abroad, among K Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul (South Korea), KUMA, Uiwang (South Korea) Brakke Grond (Amsterdam) and New Dutch Photography Talent 2017 GUP Magazine, Amsterdam.
