Jooyoung Lee (lives and works in Seoul) works across a wide variety of media, including installation, sound systems, and video. Much of her art interacts with the public sphere directly, questioning the division of private and public, often by inviting collaboration. Lee explores both the notions and challenges of communication and translation through text, speech, and sound in both the gallery space and via public interventions. Her work has been exhibited at various venues including the Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul), the Changdong Studio of the National Museum of Art (Seoul), and Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces (Melbourne).
Jooyoung Lee produces the third and final part of "Scratching the surface—diving in deep," a site-specific sound project for R22, the radio station of L’appartement 22, using sounds, music, and interviews. Part one was conducted in Bergen, Norway in June 2008 and was an investigation of the relatively short distance between the under- and overground local music scenes. Part two happened in Seoul from September to November 2008. Each part of Scratching the surface—diving in deep is a response to the particular locations of the installment. This project, which creates an auditive, three-continent triangle (South Korea, Asia; Norway, Europe; and Morocco, Africa), is co-curated by Anne Szefer Karlsen and Abdellah Karroum.
