Lee Bul selected for Manifesta 2022

6 May 2022

Lee Bul has been announced as one of the artists selected for the 2022 edition of Manifesta, the prominent roving European biennial, which will open in Prishtina, Kosovo, on 22 July 2022.

Born in 1964 to dissident parents under the military dictatorship of Park Chung-Hee in South Korea, Lee Bul investigates the ways that modern art, architecture and technology have shaped both our real and imagined worlds. The artist began her career with public performances that positioned her own body as both subject and object of the work. Today, her works draw inspiration from diverse sources – including film, literature and modern architecture, as well as European and South Korean history – to create hybrid forms that convey a fantastical and often disconcerting dystopian vision.
