STAGE OF MIND
4 June - 26 July 2015
Artist Talk: Fri 5 June, 1pm (Crescent Arts Centre)
The Naughton Gallery is delighted to present Korean artist JeeYoung Lee's first solo exhibition in the UK and Ireland, Stage of Mind. The exhibition will showcase a selection of her photographic works along with a reproduction of one of her installations, which will be re-built by the artist during a short residency in Belfast.
JeeYoung Lee's work represents the intangible world of feelings and her personal, psychological experiences in everyday life. Taking inspiration not only from life, but also from visual and literary stimuli, Lee creates her inner worlds with infinite patience and precisness in her studion in Seoul, Korea. Recipient of multiple artistic awards including the Sovereign Art Prize (2012), JeeYoung Lee is one of the most promising artists of the younger Korean artistic world. Following the huge success of her first solo show outside of Korean with Opiom Gallery in 2014, her work was seen 500,000 times in Reddit in just 2 days and has been featured in the worldwide media from the USA to China.
The exhibition is curated by Elisa Nocente, organised in collaboration with Opiom Gallery (France) and kindly supported by the Korea Foundation. It will be accompanied by an artist talk and a series of Korean films at the QFT.
Venue: The Naughton Gallery
Opening Times: Tues - Sun, 11am - 4pm
