Aram Lee was born 1986 in Seoul, and lives and works in Amsterdam. As an artist Lee’s focus has been on reinterpreting and repurposing the matter found within institutions. Her critical approach and research reconnect the suspended sequences of an object and extend the timeline of static things. Her performative events, and video installations reshapes the complex trajectories of objects and images into complex socio-political systems by shifting power structure.
