Lee Bul at Hayward Gallery
The London gallery showcases a dream-like exhibition by the South Korean artist
London's Hayward Gallery presents an extensive presentation of works by South Korean artist Lee Bul.
Bul, whose work often questions patriarchal authority, has transformed the space into a "spectacular dream-like landscape", featuring monstrous bodies, futuristic cyborgs, glittering mirrored environments and a huge foil Zeppelin.
"For the past three decades, Lee Bul has drawn on diverse sources that include science fiction, visionary architecture and personal experience, whilst making use of deliberately clashing materials that range from silk and mother of pearl to fibreglass and silicone," said the gallery.
"Bringing together more than 100 works from the late 1980s to the present day, this exhibition explores the full range of Lee Bul's pioneering and thought-provoking practice, from provocative early performances to recent large-scale installations that attempt to get our body and our brain 'working at the same time, together'."
