Miyeon LEE

Chur is a small town of 30,000 populations in Switzerland and it is my home since December 2018. As I am used to Korea’s mountainous landscape, I feel affectionate and attached to the surroundings here. My body, feet and mind rub against, walk up and down the topography and discover joy, fear and wonder. The mountains of Engadin area are extremely high and their energy is especially beyond human scale. The memories of entering into the non-human terrain with legs and eyes last very long. Accumulation of endless walking and observation has seeped into the memory of my body, and turned into a personal knowledge and feeling that comes from within. This crystalized sense of knowing became a new inspiration.
