The Korean Cultural Center New York is pleased to host the exhibition Boundaries of Existence by Jinhee Lee, professor in the Department of Stage Design at the Korea National University of Arts and award-winning costume designer of films and Korean dramas.

This exhibition focuses on Korean handicrafts and the colors of her sculptural works, combining various media to express depth and dynamism. It aims to highlight the boundaries that suppress taboos, norms, and nature in conventional society and to draw attention to segmented elements. The act of ‘crafting’ serves as a crucial expressive method embodying the artist’s philosophy, symbolizing the connection and healing of fragmented, broken, and damaged elements in sculptural forms.

Known as The Grand Master of K-DRAMA in Traditional Costume, Jinhee Lee has been creating costumes and sculptural works based on stage art. She is a highly acclaimed costume designer known for her work on numerous theater plays, movies, and Korean dramas such as “My Dearest,” “Love in Moonlight,” and “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” She received the Best Costume Award for “Ansisung” at the prestigious Dae Jong Film Awards.

Join the Korean Cultural Center next week for a special talk with the artist followed by the exhibition opening reception.
