LEE Ungbai Solo Exhibition: Metal Play Close
- Period/ 2013.12.14(Sat) ~ 2014.03.30(Sun)
LEE Ungbai reflects on the meaning of sculpture which is usually viewed unilaterally and from a certain distance. His works are presented with an extremely important message by way of “touching” and “playing.” They approach us with an immense level of affection that metal pipes, his original material of choice, cannot impart. Unlike industrial metal, his metal pipes are reborn in exquisite colors. His pieces touch humans and vice versa as they transform into works viewers can enjoy via touch. By doing this, his pieces bring a new meaning to modernism art.

What will our consumption behaviors be like in the 21st century when the capitalistic system becomes more pervasive? A multitude of industrial products attract consumers with the allure of their appearances. Consumption through symbols and signs like logos and brands has become routine in the capitalistic world. This way of consumption, however, causes people to adhere to symbols and brands more than nature and content. Newbanran is a creative exhibit project that sheds a new light on the meaning of branding, the be-all and end-all of consumption, by posing a question concerning its patterns. This project intends to unveil the nature of such a phenomenon in a cheerful way by using parody.
