Wings of Desire
Opening reception: Thursday, February 14, 2019 | 6-8pm
Present at all times but invisible to the human eye, our contemporary environment is overwhelmed with waves of diverse frequencies in order to communicate and exchange knowledge. From radio, television, phone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices to government, military and scientific communications – everything occupies a bandwidth to sustain our existing way of life. “Today our radio frequency spectrum is exceptionally overcrowded to satisfy these daily functions, yet I cannot feel it.” Khan Lee’s exhibition, Wings of Desire, will attempt to depict this phenomenon to further examine the impact of our current reality.
Khan Lee was born in Seoul, Korea. He studied architecture at Hong-Ik University, before immigrating to Canada to study fine art at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Through sculptural and media practices, his work attempts to exhibit results of experimentation with form and process in order to express inherent relationships between material and immaterial content. He is a founding member of the Vancouver-based artist collective Intermission and is presently a member of the Instant Coffee artist collective. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Lee lives and works in Vancouver, BC.
