Two Faces

Duegyoung Lee

Essays by Geun-jun Lim and Z-won Rhee

Two Faces: Book

This book presents Duegyoung Lee’s photography of the same name, which is “a panoramic picture of the Hangang riverside landscape, composed of about 13,000 photographs Lee took for four days on several boats (cleaning boat, cruise boat, municipal boat), traveling the 48 km waterway of the Hangang from the upper region of Misa-ri, Gyeonggi-do, passing through Seoul, all the way down to Gimpo area, Gyeonggi-do.”

Conceptually, Two Faces is a combination of two books: one with the north side view and the other the south side. The book is constructed as if the two books are put together bottom-to-bottom, so that the two views from the Hangang correspond to each other geographically. The pages are Asian-folded to create the impression of a continuous flow of the landscape. The cover shows the entire work compressed widthwise to 2%. A short, personal essay by Z-won Rhee, reflecting the modern history of the Hangang, is included as a supplement.

Published in conjunction with Duegyoung Lee’s exhibition of the same name at Songwon Art Center, Seoul, 2010.
