Flowers in the Park takes inspiration from the artist Sangmin Lee’s personal experience growing up in St. James Town, Toronto. As the son of Korean parents, Lee was inspired by the style of urban planning known as “Towers in the Park”, which was invented by pioneer of modern architecture Le Corbusier.

The artist uses engraved Baltic birch plywood with drywall compound for this powerful wall installation that narrates the story of the immigrant experience and “the roses that grow from drywall.”

As the son of Korean parents, Lee was inspired by the style of urban planning known as “Towers in the Park”, which was invented by pioneer of modern architecture Le Corbusier. Lee states, “Made in the (architect’s) vision of utopia, the buildings were meant to accommodate large populations with little room for ornamentation. Its failure to reflect how people actually wanted to live is an example of the disparities between theory and reality. It is where Utopian ideals, as homogeneous geometry, meets the resilient nature of human heterogeneity.”

The artist uses engraved Baltic birch plywood with drywall compound for this powerful wall installation that narrates the story of the immigrant experience and “the roses that grow from drywall.”
