ByungHo Lee Solo Exhibition< Three Shades > at SPACE SO


2020.9.17 – 10.25
ByungHo Lee

SPACE SO holds a solo exhibition of ByungHo Lee, one of the artists participating in the KIAF ART SEOUL 2020, from 17 September to 25 October. In this exhibition, we introduce his new works of the “Anthropometry” series.

The series of silicone sculptural works, which he has worked on since 2006, reveals the empty part, or what is invisible but existent, behind the contour lines (surfaces) as air inside the silicone goes out. While the silicone sculptural series reveals invisible beings in the way of altering the surfaces, the Anthropometry series uncovers diverse forms of movements and existences that are invisible but existent beneath the lines by destructing the surfaces and contour lines. To that end, the artist duplicates a prototype multiple times and makes the inside come to the surface by breaking up the lines and surfaces. His Anthropometry series creates movement through destruction and reconnection, undergoes another process of disconnection and combination and continues their transformation by uniting with the surfaces that are existent in another time, creating another surface.
