Fifty light bulbs hang together from the ceiling, emitting a strong glow into the center of a dark room. As the audience enters the space, this stark image is their initial experience of a piece that is both installation and interactive performance. Hee Ran Lee*’s *50 Bulbs explores the dichotomy of “I” versus “other”, and the insecurities consequent to cultural marginalization. Growing up female in the patriarchal power structure of South Korea, as well as living extensive periods away from home as a cultural minority, has provoked Lee’s research on “otherness” and how it relates to conformity and dominance. The fragility of the lightbulbs create a tense and precarious space as the audience find themselves integral to the work’s conclusion.
Hee Ran Lee is a performance artist whose work presents immersive environments that allow audiences to investigate a thoroughly constructed time and space.
