Lee Bul

Page 1 | Biography


Born in 1964, Lee Bul grew up in Seoul and received a BFA in sculpture from Hongik University. Considered the leading Korean artist of her generation, she has achieved over the past two decades international renown for her formally inventive, intellectually provocative oeuvre. Demonstrating virtuosity across diverse media – from drawing and performance to sculpture, painting, installation, and video – her multifaceted production is representative of the most innovative aesthetic currents shaping contemporary art in the global sphere.

Lee Bul's work has been featured in solo presentations at museums throughout the world, including Domus Artium, Salamanca (2007); Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2004); Japan Foundation, Tokyo (2003); The Power Plant, Toronto (2003); MAC, Musée d'Art Contemporain, Marseille (2002); New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2002); Le Consortium, Dijon (2002); Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia (2001); Kunsthalle Bern (1999); and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1997). In November 2007, Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, will mount a solo exhibition of her new work.

She has also participated in important group shows such as Global Feminisms at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (2007); the inaugural Artes Mundi Prize exhibition, National Museum & Gallery, Cardiff (2004); world rush_4 artists, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2003); The Uncanny, Vancouver Art Gallery (2002); 01.01.01: Art in Technological Times, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2001); and Let's Entertain, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2000). In 1998 Lee Bul was a finalist for the Hugo Boss Prize, Guggenheim Museum, New York. In 1999 she was awarded a prize at the 48th Venice Biennale for her contribution to both the Korean Pavilion and the international exhibition in the Arsenale curated by Harald Szeemann.
