HELLO MURDER!



“Today jewellery is more than a luxury object. My pieces contain a point of view on the modern society and the actuality we all share.”

“Today jewellery is more than just a luxury object. My pieces contain a point of view on the modern society and the actuality we all share.”

As an artist Dabin Lee works around social problems and daily issues in our society that need more concern. Her bright, humorous and colorful pieces are based on her drawings that portray the everyday reality. In every piece a message is given to the viewer or participant by showing different stories behind the work. A kind of ‘double entendre’ which makes people realize and think about their own perception and opinion.

With “Hello Murder!” Lee talks about our human intentions drawn by our personal emotions and cravings. The feeling that we seem much too comfortable based on our possessions. For Lee there is a distinct misjudgment in the word value, and what value really defines. “Hello Murder!” tries to make us think about our daily consumer society and the

downsides of it. A plastic bag is light and easy to produce for example but not necessary. In the end we only enlarge the trash pile. Not to mention the pollution of our environment, the beaches, the sea..
