Lee is best known for his single-video channel installation works but actually presents a wider range of works including sculptures, kinetic arts, paintings and performances. His pieces cover themes such as religion, politics and philosophy.

The kaleidoscopic artist earned a B.A. degree from Hongik University and a M.A. degree from The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design in Germany, both for western paintings.The Venice exhibition will also introduce many genres of his works like videos, paintings, sculptures and installations.

Venice Art Biennale is arguably the world’s biggest art festival. The Korean Pavilion was established in 1995 and a commissioner, who selects an artist or a group of artists to present in the pavilion, is designated every year by Arts Council Korea.

Lee will be showcasing upgraded versions of his existing works that gained approval at the international level through biennales and exhibitions.
