A CIRCLE’S TRAVEL by Lim Seong Hui and Jaeeun Bia Lee
128 x 179mm, 98 pages, colour printing, coptic bound with dustjacket, 2023
Lim Seong Hui is an artist who portrays multi-layered senses inspired by the scenery she has encountered. A CIRCLE’S TRAVEL is her first publication adding a narrative to the landscapes. This publication uses visual elements, such as landscapes, figures and frames, to illustrate the journey of a small circle. The small circle leaps out of its own world (frame) and begins its journey. Hope you enjoy the story by following the movement of the small circle.
A CIRCLE’S TRAVEL is not just an art book, but an exhibition space that overcomes space constraints. Jaeeun Bia Lee, a designer and editor, believes that print media, considered one of the most traditional media, can also be the contemporary exhibition space. In other words, designers and editors organise artworks on paper to allow readers to immerse themselves in the author’s narrative, just as curators contemplate how to display artworks for a good exhibition experience. Therefore, creating and distributing A CIRCLE’S TRAVEL as a publication means transforming the exhibition space into a collectable form. It allows people to have the experience of enjoying the artworks in a three- dimensional way, going beyond the experience in the physical space filled up with art that cannot be touched.
