Intelligence Lee Bul

Lee Bul, a world renowned Korean artist, showcased her fifth exhibition with Lehmann Maupin from January 12th-February 11th. Lee Bul created a variety of mixed media works and installations. The inspiration behind this exhibition was a look into structural systems—ranging from the human body to utopian societies.

The two main installations in the exhibit are Civitas Solis IV and Souterrain. Both are a mixed representation of futuristic vision, ideology and aesthetics. Civitas Solis IV, also known as City of the Sun, is made up of a series of small, metal pieces mixed in with light bulbs situated on a metal platform. Lee Bul worked to blur the lines between reality and imagination with this creation in hopes of having audiences question both will and creative power. Specifically, Souterrain is a tunnel structure crafted from shards of mirror. Audiences are filled with a sense of euphoria as well as claustrophobia when they enter this intriguing work.
