Lee Bul studied sculpture at the Hongik University in Seoul, and after her studies, devoted herself to performance and interactive art. Her interventions have provoked lively discussions in the international art world again and again. It is the visitors themselves who are typically at the center of her works, either interacting with or even becoming an integral part of her installations. She repeatedly addresses the topic of “utopia” – the human desire to create a better society and humanity’s failure to succeed in doing so.
Lee Bul is considered one of the most important contemporary artists of her generation. Her works have been exhibited at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo and in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, among other venues. At the 48th Venice Biennale, her works were shown both in the Korean pavilion and in the international exhibition curated by Harald Szeemann.
