Artist Statement


호모 루덴스 (Homo ludens), 유희하는 인간이라는 개념은 문화란 원초(原初)부터 유희되는 것이며, 유희 속에서 유희로서 발달함을 주장하는데, 이는 이혜미 작가의 작업 철학이기도 하다. 흙의 자연스러운 질감을 어루만져 형성된 토대에 유약을 발라 굽고, 그 후로 은을 올려 다시 굽고, 연마하기를 반복한다. 작가의 작업은 정성으로 빚은 시간의 결과물이며, 작업의 과정 그 자체가 작가 스스로에게 큰 유희인 것이다. 이렇게 성형된 작품은 공간과 온도, 습도를 만나 자연적인 변화를 거듭하며 새로운 장면과 분위기를 연출한다. 시간의 축적은 작가의 주된 작업 기법인 자기 위에 은 (Silver)를 켜켜히 쌓는 기법으로 인해 극대화된다. ‘Hook’ series는 부조형태의 오브제로 ‘시간성’이라는 작가의 작업기조를 순수하고 오롯하게 담는다. 은(silver)는 황화 현상을 통해 은빛에서 금빛으로, 적빛에서 흑빛으로 오랜 기간을 걸쳐 서서히 변화한다. 

기 다른 황화 현상이 발현된 오브제들을 한 장면에 두고 바라보면 세월의 여러 장면을 대면하여 발생하는 일렁이는 감정에 머무르는 듯 하다. 작품을 통해 시간으로 숙성된 은빛의 변주를 체험하며, 흙과 은이라는 물성에 시간이 선사하는 아름다움을 포착해 볼 수 있길 바란다.



Homo ludens, the concept of a playing human being, is that culture is about playing from the beginning. It claims to develop from play to play and this is also the philosophy of Hyemi Lee. Glaze and bake the foundation formed by stroking the natural texture of the clay. After that, silver is placed on top and baked again, and the polishing is repeated. The artist's work is the result of time crafted with sincerity, the process of the work itself is a great play for the artist herself. The molded work meets space, temperature, and humidity and undergoes natural changes, creating new scenes and atmospheres.

The accumulation of time is maximized by the artist's main work technique, the technique of stacking silver on top of porcelain. Hook series is a relief-type objet that the artist's work principle of “time” is expressed purely and completely. Silver changes gradually over a long period of time from silver to gold and from red to black through yellowing. If you look at objects with different yellowing phenomena in one scene, it seems to stay in the fluctuating emotions that arise in the face of various scenes of time. By experiencing the variation of silver that has matured with time through the artwork, you can capture the aesthetics that time gives to the physical properties of clay and silver.
