We are happy to welcome Yein Lee to our team as this semester’s guest tutor!
She will be a vital part of running the current brief, ‘SALVAGING A GOOD TIME’.
Yein Lee (b. 1988, S.Korea) lives and works in Vienna. After studying visual arts in Seoul, she continued her education in painting and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Her practice combines elements of technology, physical organisms, and fantastic conceptions to create hybrid visions of the bodily realm. Investigating relations of social dissonance in her extended surroundings, found objects are combined with casted pieces and painterly gestural liveness. She creates a field of discussion by targeting the complexities of societal behavior. Her work has recently been presented in group exhibitions at the Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris; Schinkel Pavilion in Berlin, Belvedere 21, Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Vienna; among others.
