Hyun Hee Lee
I am a practicing artist, born in Korea and now living in Australia. I have a MFA from UNSW and am represented by Artereal Gallery. As I am part of the Asian diaspora I have experienced feelings of cultural and emotional displacement. With this work Wishes I explore the spirit of connection by recreating and re-contextualizing Korean religious rituals and practices and folk beliefs through the lens of my own experience. This installation continues the work which was started in the Chinese New Year Festival in Chippendale earlier this year.
