The works of young South Korean artist and videographer Heewon Lee demonstrate a rare fascination. Whether the installation
(like the work entitled 108) or movies (such as Phone Tapping), the acute relevance of language and aesthetics of technology
is always at the service of a poetic dimension that makes you forget everything process for the benefit of the work both in
its obviousness and its enigma. Rarely, among the productions of the artists of her generation, we find as in HeeWon Lee?s
works, such an impression of accuracy and such a novelty, without free nor the ornamental dimension which weaken too often
the game with the contemporary technics of the image. There is in the works of HeeWon Lee both the necessity and grace.
