Fate, Destiny, or In-Yeon as it is known in Buddhist philosophy, has had Hyun-Hee Lee’s life path fetch her up in Sydney many years ago separating her over time and distance from her parents in Korea.
IN-YEON 인연 is a chronicle of the artist’s powerful and mixed emotional responses around her parents’ visit from Korea to Sydney for four weeks in September 2018 after a decade’s absence. An overwhelming emptiness for the artist followed their leaving.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 5 June 2019
