Lee Bul

Born in Seoul, 1964 and lives in Seoul, South Korea

Lee Bul investigates the liminal space between binaries such as the individual and the collective, and contradictory feelings such as isolation and claustrophobia. Her installations and sculptures explore universal themes such as the utopian desire to achieve perfection through technological advances, and the dystopic suspicions and failures that often result.  In 1999, Lee Bul was awarded an honorable mention at the 48th Venice Biennale for her contribution to both the Korean Pavilion and the international exhibition curated by Harald Szeemann. In 2014, she received the Noon Award at the 10th Gwangju Biennale, given to an established artist who has produced the most experimental work that embodies the theme of the biennale.
