Seungjun Lee's work deals with the question of what memory is, how we react to it, and what memories we collectively refer to. Lee's art moves between reality and retrospective, always with the attempt to find a further access to his own being. In conversation with his own memory, Lee embarks on a search for a place to which he always returns. Dust is a recurring medium in his work that is connected to reality as well as the past. With dust and sand, Lee creates a house, a space of his memory. This loses its form over time and is finally nothing more than sand, an unconsolidated sediment.
Seungjun Lee comes from South Korea and graduated in 2022 with a master's degree in fine arts from Thomas Zipp's class at the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
