Lee Bul: a special installation at the KCC

From 10 September the main Lee Bul action in the UK can be found in Birmingham at the Ikon Gallery.

But to coincide with Ikon gallery’s first UK solo show of Lee Bul, the Korean Cultural Centre UK will be showcasing the visually compelling Diluvium (2014). This work, with its steel frames covered by irregularly angled wooden structures, has been reconstructed specifically for this exhibition and venue. The mirror-effect vinyl surrounding these structures in turn erases the sense of space by creating an endless realm of reflection and deflection. What is supposed to be a smooth surface of the a white-cube is thus transformed into a rabbit-hole through which the audience can encounter the captivating world of Lee Bul.

The exhibition at the KCC runs 13 September – 1 November, 2014
