Youngho Lee explores the relativity of advancement of technology and humans. The idea of relativity is rooted in a distinctly oriental sensibility and perspective. Lee’s work takes the shape of film or multiple-screen video installations. But while the medium plays an important role in her practice, it is only one of the many components of her work. Lee uses historic motifs, which she reorganises into her own language or updates by interweaving them in her films and creating environments in a space of fantasy that reflects reality.
