In Transit (Arrival)
An exhibition by Yona Lee
In Transit (Arrival) explores the structure and pulse of civilisation through a vast entangled structure made of stainless steel tube commonly used as barriers and handrails in train stations and airports around the world. This is the same railing that fences off sections of Seoul Metro stations, the tubing that rotates in the turnstiles as you enter the New York subway, the pole that you grasp as the Tube hurtles beneath London, or the bars that hold your bag in place on the Shinkansen as you depart Tokyo. The ingenious simple design of this system makes it easy to install and easily adapted for purpose, and is the means through which bodies can be corralled in efficient uniformity.
In 2016, Lee was an Asia New Zealand Foundation artist in residence at SeMa Nanji residency in Seoul, South Korea.
