Jungjin Lee’s publication Desert offers our eyes a tactile experience. She gives us permission to trace the surface texture in an intimate close up and to get lost in a space devoid of structure and time. The book perfectly translates the experience of viewing her large-scale installations on handmade paper, as well as her small, delicate prints without appearing as documentation. This publication is a jewel I want to touch and look at over and over again as one would read and re-read a favorite poem.

Mountain Interval is her latest project and is accompanied by a monograph published by Radius Books with an essay by The Parrish Museum director, Terrie Sultan. Aller's work supports her investigation into the relationship between Romanticism, memory, and landscape – in the context of our current socio-political awareness. www.renatealler.com
