Luxembourg | Lee Bul exhibition

LB_04 A major solo exhibition of works by Lee Bul, Korean contemporary artist, opens at Mudam Luxembourg - Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean - in Luxembourg and runs 5 October 2013 - 9 June 2014.

Lee Bul is one of South Korea’s most active artists on the international contemporary art scene. She began her career in the eighties with a series of street performances in which she wore prosthetic dresses – morphological extensions with which she transformed her appearance. More recently, Bul’s work has gravitated towards architecture. After subjecting the human body to distortions and manipulations, the artist is now transfiguring our built environment and undermining our perception of space. Her exhibition at Mudam will occupy the entire lower ground floor and include a site-specific work for the museum’s Grand Hall.

Mudam is the foremost museum dedicated to contemporary art in Luxembourg, and strives to be attentive to every discipline and open to the whole world. Its collection and programme reflect current artistic trends and appreciate the emergence of new artistic practices on a national and international scale.
