Artist lecture unfolds Wednesday night
JOSEPH — The Josephy Center is honored to present world famous Korean artist Hun-chung Lee to the Live and Up Front Artist Lecture at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Lee is an artist-in-resident at LH Project for the remainder of the month.
Hun-chung Lee is a man beyond media. Over the course of years, Lee has used ice, trash, chocolate, flower petals, candy, glass, lightbulbs, bamboo and even live goldfish to convey his artistic visions into art production. However, there is something appealingly elemental about his work in which he returns to his ceramicist roots.
Lee creates his own world with sculptures that combine characteristic and functional properties, through his unique perspective on materials and various approaches to them. Starting with pottery onto sculpture, installation art and then to furniture, his work proves his endless pursuit of novelty. His work not only creates the harmony with materials, but also mingles in everyday life through the harmony among sculpture, space and people. Neither just an object nor a tool, his work becomes a poetry filled with philosophy of life.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments and drinks will be provided. Suggested donation is $5.
