Soyung Lee lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. She examines the notion of a regional culture and its effect on individual histories, internal conflicts, and sensibilities. Since 2011, she has been working on a research-based project titled "THE FUTURE IS COMING FROM ALL DIRECTIONS," an inquiry into issues of immigration, settlement, and residence that the Korean diaspora in Central Asia encounter on a daily basis. She received a BFA at the Art Center College of Art (1998) and an MFA at Korea National University of Arts as a fine arts - media major (2004).
