The Mori Art Museum has opened the exhibition, Lee Bul: From Me, Belongs to You Only, which includes early art performances, a series of sculptural wroks transcending the body, and also recent works reminiscent of architectural or urban planning models.
The Korean female artist has been considered one of Asia’ s leading artists since the 1990s, when her work, a mix of sculptures and installations, was shown at numerous international venues including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Lyon Biennale and the Venice Biennale.
Through her practice, Lee has sought to transcend both the human body and society as we know them, and this exhibition represents the first chance to get a full overview of that process. It include about 45 works, several of which are new. There is something quite poetic in her always very intricate, abstract sculptures that is fascinating.
