About works / performance

Lee performs research on historical events, political systems, and ideology. His work addresses the lack of proper governance over the records and affiliated historiography. Through performance, documentation, and installation, Lee considers the individual gesture as a form of political and artistic transgression, which resonates with existing narratives of history. Lee’s ongoing research project “Archive of the People” addresses the political standing of documents and archives in the social setting. In 2016, Lee established collective “Archive of the People”, which serves as an extension of his personal research to collaborative projects, education and publications.
