About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Framer Framed

Aram Lee

Aram Lee (Seoul, South-Korea, 1986) lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 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. At times 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 reveal impure, spectral and false actions of institutions to enable the dissolution of (cultural) predominance and visualise new structures.

Aram’s work A dissonance of landscapes (2019) was shown at Framer Framed as part of the group exhibition Elsewheres Within Here (2019), curated by Jo-Lene Ong.

Aram Lee’s video installation To Pluto and Back (2019) is on display as part of Unlocked/Reconnected at Framer Framed (2 June – 16 Aug 2020).
