The Mori Art Museum in Tokyo will exhibit the works of Lee Bul in Lee Bul: From Me, Belongs to You Only (4 February 2012- 27 May 2012). Lee Bul was born in South Korea in 1964 and has been considered one of Asia's leading artists.
This exhibition will include Lee Bul's early performances using her own body, a series of works in which sculpture is presented as an existence transcending the human body, and also recent works reminiscent of architectural or urban planning models. 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 will include around 45 works, several of which are new.
A symposium, Seeking an Ideal Society, featuring Lee Bul, Richard Noble (Goldsmiths College, University of London) and Takahashi Toru (professor, Waseda University) will accompany the exhibition.
