Glossary

The 4th APAP selects keywords surrounding public art in different levels, and produces explanatory or interpretive texts for each keyword. This glossary contains principal concepts of public art, artists, theorists and projects that have been dealt with by the 4th APAP, and also its previous editions. Along with illustrations by Leeje and Han Sue-ja, the texts are updated once a week on APAP's new website.

The keywords and illustrations are made into *Big Book*, which will be placed in Park Library. It is to serve as a guide for public art, approachable for all, from children not accustomed to small typeface to seniors who are farsighted and have difficulty reading small letters. *Big Book*, approximately 50cm in height, will also be designed mobile so that the readers can access easily.

APAP’s Glossary treats 12 keywords, including public art, commons, socially engaged art, archive, media theory and utopia.

She is interested in the points where desire, despair, and hope intersect. Apart from solo show *Here, Now* (OCI Museum of Art, 2010), Leeje participated in various group shows at Art Space Pool, PKM Gallery, and Gallery Hyundai to name a few. She is currently working on the 2Y2W2V project with artist Han Sue-Ja.

She paricipated in collaborative projects that led to *Binge* (Insa Art Space, Seoul, 2005), *Neverending Story Ko Woo Young* (Arko Art Center, Seoul, 2009), and *Pungnyeon Super Camp* (Art and Garden, 2012).
