ArtTechPsyche 2020

Born in Seoul, South Korea and educated in Germany and USA, Young Joo Lee’s work deals with deeply personal narratives about her experiences of being an immigrant, a woman, and a cultural nomad. These personal narratives interweave with the current and historical narratives in her recent moving image, performance and Virtual Reality works. Her work is a glimpse into how our environments are not only outside of us but how they truly alter our perception as a whole, informing our personal identities. Young Joo Lee earned her MA in Film at Academy of Fine Arts Staedelschule Frankfurt, and an MFA in Sculpture at Yale University. Her recent works were shown nationally and internationally including the Drawing Center, New York, Alternative Space Loop, Seoul, Ochi Projects LA, Seoul National University Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Center for the Arts. Her work has been supported by Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture Fund (2018), Incheon Art Platform International artist residency Award (2017), HP Blended Reality Grant (2016-17), Alice Kimball Traveling Fellowship, Fulbright Scholarship (2015-17), Hessen Film Fund (2013), and DAAD artist scholarship (2010-12).
