KWANGHO LEE: CUTTING LINES

The Korean Cultural Centre Australia presents the first solo exhibition of Kwangho Lee in Australia as part of Sydney Design Week 2023.

Kwangho Lee: Cutting Lines features ten new works, showcasing Lee’s approach to unlocking the potential of different forms through the medium of 3D printing. With his visionary designs and intricate creations, Lee pushes the boundaries of traditional craftsmanship to transform everyday objects into mesmerising pieces of art.

Making things by hand was a great joy of his as a child, reminding him of his grandfather, a farmer himself, who constantly made daily household goods from natural materials found nearby. Lee appreciated the way he looked at everyday objects and thus began to approach things in similar ways; to give new meaning and function to the most ordinary. Today, as Lee continuously presents new series of works, he develops his practice by discovering moments of materials joining another.
