This event has ended.

Lee’s keywords for this exhibition include concepts like “fear,” “solitude,” and “breathing.” Many of these chosen terms reflect frustration with political and social inequalities, the stresses that accompany daily life, and inescapable solitude. On display are around ten works, among them “Scratching the Table Surface” and other past representative pieces, new works including paintings on cloth with text, paintings on cardboard, and video created for the gallery’s unique space. While Lee’s works do not speak their messages loudly, they embody a refined wit. The Japanese public, having passed through its own period of high economic prosperity, is now standing at a turning point. These works include some hints for the Japanese to cope with their current situation.
