Young Joo Lee
Young Joo Lee is a multimedia artist from South Korea. Her work deals with personal narratives about her experiences of being an immigrant in Europe and the US, a woman, and a cultural nomad. In her recent moving image works, these personal narratives interweave with the current and historical narratives in order to investigate the issues of cultural colonialism, alienation, and assimilation processes.
Young Joo has an MFA in Sculpture at Yale University and an MFA in Film at Academy of Fine Arts Städelschule Frankfurt. She was a College Fellow in Media Practice at Harvard University (2018-20), a Fulbright Scholar in Film & Digital Media (2015-18) and a recipient of DAAD artist scholarship (2010-12). Her work has been exhibited in national and international venues; The Drawing Center, Seoul National University Museum of the Arts, Cairo Video Festival, Korean American Film Festival, Anthology Film Archive, Museum of Modern Art Zollamt Frankfurt am Main, Alternative Space Loop and Curitiba Biennial for the Arts.
