Art Projects Gallery is delighted to present contemporary Korean ceramics artist, Lee Yun Hee's third solo exhibition in Hong Kong, following her previous two sell-out solo exhibitions in 2015 and 2016. Based in Seoul, Lee is known for her highly imaginative and exquisite hand-made ceramic sculptures that integrate European literature and western historical artifacts with Asian elements and sensibilities to reflect a fusion of Eastern and Western identities.


"Sublime Journeys" showcases Lee's latest collection of ceramics works inspired by the 14th century Italian Poet, Dante Aligheiri’s pre-eminent literary work, "The Divine Comedy".

The collection embodies Lee's continual exploration of the theme of Dante's journey that becomes increasingly intertwined with the artist's experiences and thoughts. Intricate ceramics details, vividly glazed colors and textures that comes from the deft touches of Lee's hands and sublime mastery of the ceramics medium, all form part and parcel of the rich expression of each work, each telling a unique, extraordinary story.
Lee (b. 1986 South Korea) graduated from Hong Ik University with a Master of Fine Art (Ceramics) in 2012 and a Bachelor of Fine Art (Ceramics) in 2008. She was selected to be resident artist at the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in 2013, in its program to support innovative and experimental artists. At the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (2013), Lee was named one of the top twenty emerging artists in a selected list of international talents.
