Lee Mijung

Lee Mijung (b. 1988) transforms her everyday observations of normative values and common aesthetics into pictorial objects. She both reproduces and betrays the contemporary through “stage-scenes” composed of individual pieces. Recently, the artist has been focusing on decorations, patterns, and functional objects that are popular in residential settings and exploring their contemporary readings. Selected solo exhibitions include SANDWICH TIMES (SongEun Art Cube, 2020), The Gold Terrace (Art Delight, 2018), Pink Noise (Gallery KunstDoc, 2014). She participated in several group exhibitions, including The Better Man 1948–2020 (Ilmin Museum of Art, 2020), IN_D_EX (Seoul Museum of Art, 2018)
