Miyeon LEE

Lee was born in South Korea and moved to the United States in her late teens. She lived and worked in New York City until her mid 30’s, before moving to Berlin, then to Limburg region (NL & BE) and finally to Chur (CH) in early 2019. While South Korea remains as psychological and physical anchor where she returns on a regular basis, her recent years have been especially uprooted being exposed to multiple cultures, languages and art scenes. Her works reflect this very fusion of personal environment (dislocations and moving) and the art (the making). Navigating on European soil as a person, an immigrant and an artist has become a reflexive process of living and production relations.
