Jaewook Lee is an artist, writer, amateur scientist, semi-philosopher, and sometime curator. Lee speculates how humans encounter nature beyond our linguistic understanding. Lee interacts with nature, using multiple senses such as sight, sound, touch, and smell. He is interested in how theses senses affect to each other in our brain or what is called synesthesia. Using a range of media such as installation, video, drawing, and performance, Lee creates environments that defamiliarize our general sense of our surrounding. Lee is the recipient of awards such as the 4th SINAP (Sindoh Artist Support Program) and the SeMA Emerging Artists and Curators Supporting Program by Seoul Museum of Art. Lee’s works have been exhibited internationally, including Asia Culture Center in Gwangju (2016), Museo Juan Manuel Blanes in Montevideo (2014), MANIFESTA 9 parallel event in Hassalt (2012), Chelsea Art Museum in New York (2011), Coreana Museum in Seoul (2006), etc. Lee has given public talks at the Guggenheim Museum (2017), Seoul Museum of Art (2015), NURTUREart (2014), among others.
