Hayward Gallery – Lee Bul Exhibition

Lee Bul exhibition Crashes, opens at the Hayward Gallery on the 1st June and I was surprised how much I liked it. This was the first time I am seeing her work. My favourite artist is Salvador Dali and this reminded me of his style, quirkiness and some what bizarre pieces.  Lee Bull’s ambitious exhibition is her first major solo opening in London. Covering three decades of work in which she specialises in contemporary sculpture, she transforms the Hayward gallery space into a futuristic landscape of massive foil Zeppelin, cityscapes, mirrored labyrinths.
Mirrored Labyrinth
A must see for any art lovers, there are 5 rooms covering the different stages of her artistic journey. Below are my favourite photographs that I took from the preview, catch lots more on the links below.

She was born in South Korea in 1964 and is one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists from Asia.

Her materials of choice range from organic to industrial from fibreglass to silicone and silk. Her later work from 2000 on-wards focuses on architectural utopianism, creating imaginative futuristic cityscapes.

Crashing

Referencing the Hindenburg disaster, a 17 foot sculpture which resembles the Zeppelin culminates the exhibition. With 118 of her works, 16 of which haven’t been seen before. This exhibition explores her thought provoking work over the last three decades. This is her first exhibition in London and she provides an investigation into the body and its relationship to architectural space.
