June LEE (b. 1985)

 

June Lee’s wok focuses on the individual in the contemporary society today. He explores the neutrality and duality of the individual as a distinct unity and again as a constituent of the collective society. In particular, he shed light on the social phenomena surrounding the individual in contemporary social space, especially on negative conditions such as bystander effect, mass psychology, scapegoating, and biases. Using East Asian element of the thread, which represents human life, to form human figure-like works, his art looks at the problems of the modern man from a third-person perspective.
