New York, NY – New York, NY – The AHL Foundation is pleased to announce the upcoming solo exhibition of artist Lee Seung Hee, titled ‘Ceramic Chronicles.’ The exhibition will take place at the AHL Foundation Gallery located at 2605 Frederick Douglass Blvd., #C1, New York, NY 10030, from November 4th to November 29th.
Lee Seung Hee was born in 1960 in Cheongju, the capital of North Chungcheong province, South Korea. He trained in the Craft Design Department at Cheongju University, where he studied ceramics, fiber craft, dyeing, and tapestry. From his porcelain painting series to his iconic ceramic Bamboo installation work, he explores the boundary between two dimensions and three dimensions, interpreting tradition into contemporary art, and these explorations will be showcased. In this way, he enables viewers to make an imaginative connection between his undeniably contemporary works and the rich heritage of ceramics.
Lee Seung Hee was invited to numerous solo exhibitions including “Synchronicity” and “TAO: Between Dimensions” at Park Ryu Sook Gallery in Seoul, Korea; “Transfiguration” at Waterfall Gallery in NY, USA; “Object beyond Object” at Force Gallery in Beijing, China; “Path” at Wally Findlay Gallery in Palm Beach, FL; “CLAYZEN” at Korean Craft Museum in Cheongju, Korea, and many more. Lee’s works have been exhibited internationally including “Who Will Give an Answer” at Cheongju Museum of Art in Korea; “Rethinking Craft” at SeMA Nam-Seoul Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea; “Reduction of Sense” at Ozasa Gallery in Kyoto, Japan; “Contemporary Korean Ceramics” at V&A Museum in London, UK; and “International Biennale of Vallauris 2016” in Vallauris, France, among many.
This exhibition was made possible with the support of the Korea Foundation. During the exhibition, anyone interested in art and ceramics can participate in a free polymer clay workshop open during gallery hours.
