Visual Artist Da eun Lee is interested in individual micronarratives and subcultures in the media environment that have emerged after the 2010s. Especially, she has continued to study how to newly show the archival materials obtained from the fieldwork within the aesthetic form of the media. This eventually refers to a metaphor in the process of moving images that are converted across media and media. She visualizes it using various media such as video, photography, installation, and performance. Recently, she has interacted with “refugees” and other “migrants” to conduct fieldwork and display works that unravel collected archive materials in the aesthetic form of video and performance. Lee received her M.F.A at Korea National University of Arts and has participated in a number of group exhibitions held in Seoul.

시각예술가 이다은은 한국예술종합학교 미술원 조형예술과 전문사 과정을 졸업하였으며, 2010년대 이후 미디어 환경에서 등장한 서브 컬쳐 및 미시적 개인의 이야기에 관심을 가지고 작업을 이어나가고 있다. 특히 필드워크에서 얻어진 아카이빙 자료를 어떻게 매체가 가진 미적 형식 안에서 새롭게 보여줄 것 인가에 대한 고민과 연구를 지속해왔다. 이는 결국 매체와 매체를 넘나들며 변환하는 ‘이미지들’의 이동 과정 안에서 은유 되는 것이기도 하다. 영상, 사진, 설치, 퍼포먼스 등의 다양한 매체를 사용하여 이를 시각화 하고 있으며, 최근에는 ‘난민’을 비롯한 여러 ‘이동자’들과 교류하며 필드워크를 진행하고 여기서 수집한 아카이빙 자료를 영상과 퍼포먼스의 미학적 형식으로 풀어낸 작업들을 전시했다.
