Aram Lee was born in Seoul and lives and works in Amsterdam. Her research-driven practice revolves around reinterpreting materials found within institutions, often seeking to relocate their role and purpose through performative events, film and video installations. Sometimes taking up processes of performative action with the public, her practice shapes the way objects are described and circulated. Her artworks challenge diasporic amnesia and release impure, spectral and false fictions from the institutions to enable the dissolution of (cultural) predominance and visualize new structures. Her work has been shown and performed at, among other venues, De Appel, Amsterdam; Framer Framed, Amsterdam; Tetterode, Amsterdam; Zuiderzeemuseum, Enkuizen; La friche la belle de Mai, Marseille; Kölnischer Kunstverein, Köln; the Bienal de arte textil contempornea, Guimares; Center for Contemporary Art and Culture, Portland (PNCA), Oregon; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin. Recent reviews and artist's books include Unknowing Culture by Lucy Cotter (2020), From Pluto to Pyeongyang and back and Post Ghost Bust, Charles Nyples Lab (2019) and Landscape with bear, De Appel (2019). She was an artist in residence at Jan Van Eyck Academie in 2018-19, and at the La friche la belle de Mai, Goethe Institute, Marseille in 2019.
