Luna Jungeun Lee is a South Korean artist who questions notions of possession and cultural (mis)appropriations. Her works are a survey of history contextualised into a hyper-realistic, futuristic setting. Although directed by gender and nationality, Lee creates works that prefer to embody their sex and citizenship through elemental abstraction and spirited representation. What results is an elaborately comical impression of the very serious issues facing Korea as it juggles its rich past with modernised uncertainties.

Born in Seoul Korea, Lee recently finished an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London. She lives and works in London.
