Chunghie Lee: My Cup Overflows
June 11 - October 18, 2009
Korean-born fiber artist, Chunghie Lee, has been strongly influenced by the Korean wrapping cloths called Pojagi. Her powerful installation references the anonymous, ancient women who, during the Choson Dynasty, created these functional works of art. Large panels of draped silk, hemp and linen - embellished with images of Korean woman and other symbols of the past â€“ are simultaneously contemporary in their graphic nature. Lee's other pieces - reinterpreted kimonos and cloth-covered sculptures â€“ speak to the connections between past and present.
