Dongwook Lee


Dongwook Lee is a sculptor of hyperrealistic miniature forms of people encased in syringes and pill packets. His figures are often nude and are on the scale of insects giving them a grotesqueness on a small scale. In these medical instruments and pill casings these micro figures are inspected with the same unnatural scientific glare as Lee connects the clinical with the natural body creating distressed forms contorted into these objects. Lee’s work emphasises the uneasiness we have with the physical bodies we are confined to. This hyper realism raises awareness to the bodies we are encased in and how fragile it really is.
