Featured at the New Museum, and with international acclaim from an expo at the Venice Biennial, Mire Lee is captivating art lovers with her gut-wrenching installations. A fully kinetic and tactile form allows for explorations of the disgusting and the morbidly fascinating.
Born in Seoul and living in Amsterdam, Mire Lee stood out from the crowd with her 2022 ceramic entrails. The Endless House: Holes and Drips installation received a range of reviews, with being unable to look away the common denominator. Now displaying in New York’s the New Museum, a fresh batch of creepy creativity is available to admire.
The walls have been layered with fabric and wet clay that’s been allowed to flow and expand with the help of a steam machine. A muddy red paint was then applied to give the material a sense of organic origin. Then, to fill the space, a variety of moving sculptures have been placed that are representations of the natural world. Metal and plastic objects are used to build the shapes with fabric and paint to finish the job.
The imagination can be left to run free while standing among the grotesque and horror-film-like setting. Walking among the moving sculptures can help bring a nightmarish scene to life as visitors explore and make conscious all the chilling ideas. If you like your thrills to be over the top and designed to disgust, then you’ll be right at home at Mire Lee’s Black Sun exhibition.
