YONGBAEK LEE


KOJP / CN


Yongbaek Lee(b. 1966, Korea) received his BFA in painting from Hongik University and pursued study of painting and sculpture at State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Germany. He is recognized as a representative artist in media art. He has worked with various technologies, from single-channel video, sound, kinetics, to robotics. The reason his work is highly evaluated is not only due to his technological experiments, but also his ability to contain the peculiar political and cultural issues of our time and his imagination on the from of these technologies. He has been working on completely fusing the physical feeling of real objects and virtual images into one. Through the works, he creates a feeling of being stopped at a moment between real and virtual, or at an ambiguous boundary between consciousness and dreams. He has made his name known all over the world through a number of international biennials and exhibitions such as Venice Biennale, Moscow Biennale, Nanjing International Art Festival, <Korean Eye 2020>, <Canema: The Mood Mosaic>.
