Biography

강이슬기
Seulgi Lee Kang is a performance, video, installation artist born in South Korea, working in London. Kang’s work deals with breaking down the simplicity and complexity of the ‘every day’, which, as so fundamental and common or uncommon, can be overlooked. Through the variation of ‘every day’, she questions our environment, the rudimentary balance of structure and subconscious rules, that for her, seem to have already been granted, by default. Expressing circumstances surrounding a moment, where she is, she uses ‘mundane’ objects and materials to create nuanced performance films that are informed by poetry, history and human emotions.

She received her Bachelor of Craft Design Degree (B.A.) in 2009 from the Junnam National University in Korea. In 2016, She received her Master's (M.A. Fine art) at Chelsea College of Arts, London. She has worked and exhibited in Seoul, Berlin, London and a recent residency in Estonia. She was selected CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021 -  her work was shown simultaneously on  London's Piccadilly Lights, Seoul’s Coex K-Pop Square and at Tokyo's Yunikavision.
