Artist in Residency at Jan Van Eyck Academie,
Maastricht, NL 2018/2019

Aram Lee was born 1986 in Seoul, and lives and works in Amsterdam. She focuses on the reinterpretation and repurposing of matter found within an institution. By reconnecting the suspended sequences of an object with critical research Lee extends the timeline of static things. This approach sees her use performative events, and video installation to reshape the complex trajectories of objects and images in complex socio-political systems. In her work objects are empowered to mediate their community and individuals and they perform to shift power structure. Her recent presentation include ‘La Grande transformation’ 100years Bauhaus, La Fiche, Marseille(2019)’, ‘Landscape with bear’, de Appel, Amsterdam(2019), Project studio ZZM, Zuiderseemuseum, Enkhuisen(2017), Kölnischer Kunstverein, Köln(2019), ’Inside out’ Haus der Kulturen welt, Berlin (2018), And she was artist in residence at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2019).
