Stage of Mind (Belfast)
About the exhibition
During the Belfast Photography Biennale, The Naughton Gallery, in collaboration with the Korea Foundation and OPIOM Gallery, is delighted to present Korean artist JeeYoung Lee’s first solo exhibition in the UK and Ireland, Stage of Mind.
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 preciseness in her studio in Seoul, Korea. Recipient of multiple artistic awards including the Sovereign Art Prize (2012), JeeYoung Lee is one the most promising artist of the younger Korean artistic world. Following the huge success of her first solo show outside of Korea with Opiom Gallery in 2014, her work was seen 500 000 times on 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’s talk and a series of Korean films at the QFT. Please visit the Gallery website for further details: www.naughtongallery.org
