This mid-career survey of the work of acclaimed South Korean artist Lee Bul – the first in London – explores the artist’s extensive investigation into the body and its relationship to architectural space.

Over the past 30 years, Lee Bul has explored questions of intimacy, gender, technology and class through a focus on the body. Drawing on science fiction, bioengineering and visionary architecture, as well as Japanese anime and manga, her work includes performance, drawing, painting and large-scale immersive installations.

Occupying the entire gallery, this exhibition includes documentation of early performances, sculptural works from the iconic Monster, Cyborg and Anagram series and recent immersive installations, as well as a selection of the artist’s studio drawings.

Exploring the political, cultural and historic context of Lee Bul’s practice, the exhibition also showcases new works and site-specific installations that respond to the architecture of the newly reopened Hayward Gallery, including one that partially envelopes the gallery’s exterior.

Supported by The Korea Foundation and The Henry Moore Foundation.
