Lee Byungchan

Lee Byungchan (b.1987) has consistently paid attention to the ecosystem of capital. Lee’s practice consists of plastic creatures, investigating into fluctuating phenomena caused by capitalistic obsession with objects and transforming mass of urban environments into time. Visualising the intangible material—capital, he constructs certain paces and spaces by adopting his experiences of capitalistic energy driven into newly-developed cities. Lee has participated in numerous group exhibitions including 〈Songeun Art Space, SUMMER LOVE, 2019〉, 〈Museum of Contemporary Busan, Nature, Life, Human, 2019〉, 〈Daejoen Museum of Art, BIO FANTASY, 2018〉, 〈Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Art is Form, 2017〉, 〈Culture Station Seoul 284, Peach Blossom Hopeful Flower of Utopia, 2016>, 〈ACC, Plastic Myths, 2015〉, 〈Seoul Museum of Art, Low technology, 2014〉 . His solo exhibitions opened at p21 〈White Elephant, 2019〉 and at Songeun Art Cube 〈The Camouflaged Dried Pollak, 2017〉 in Seoul. His international activities include 〈CULTURES ÉLECTRONIQUES ET ARTS NUMÉRIQUES, (jardin des plants), NANTES, FRANCE, 2016〉 and 〈Please Return to Busan Port, Vestfossen Museum, VESTFOSSEN, NORWAY, 2016〉.
Also, Lee has selected by sponsorships of Gyeonggi Cultural Foundation, Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture, and 2014 Emerging Artists Support Programme of Seoul Museum of Art. He was one of the selected artists at the SEMA Nanji Residency in 2018.
