Lee Seung Taek’s Non-Art: The Inversive Act

A large-scale retrospective shading light on the 60-year career of a leading Korean contemporary artist

Lee Seung Taek (b. 1932) is a representative figure in Korean experimental art who has continued since the 1950s until today with a prolific body of work spanning installation, sculpture, painting, photography, land art, and performance art. His artistic practice can be synthezied with his declaration, “My view was inverted. My thought process was inverted. My life in this world was inverted.”

The exhibition includes reproductions of major works from the 1960s based on historical materials, as well as restorations of the artist’s early works in pursuit of “non-sculpture.” Some of Lee’s major installations of the 1970s and 1980s, and various works featuring the key influence of shamanism in Lee’s practice.
