In her site-specific room installations, actions and image series Jeewi Lee works with performative and daily occurrences, which come into view as traces and serve Lee as painterly element. For Lee traces concurrently indicate movement (in urban as well as in exhibition spaces) as well as the reflection of production process.

She currently works and lives in Florence as part of the Villa Romana award which she received in 2018.
