Inspired by alienation and angst, Ji Lee‘s Squozen is a bizarre, but meaningful, installation that harks back to a period of awkward adolescence. Things become apparently cloudier in your twenties, but at least you are aware of the storm–and you even go as far as to relish in it. However, teenagehood can be a far choppier sea, and attempting to navigate it can put one in a tighter squeeze than expected. Squozen was done for “Small is Beautiful”, an exhibition by Theme & Scion / Murphy & Dine Gallery.
‘Squozen is an installation piece which captures my experience as a teen of being trapped in a strange world I didn’t fit, yet I was somehow part of it. I still have these feelings sometimes.’
– Ji Lee.
