COURTHOUSE GALLERY: Sang Wook Lee November 10 - December 14, 2012Opening Reception: Saturday, November 10, 4 - 6 PMSang Wook Lee will create a site specific installation in theCourthouse Gallery using ramen noodles. These instant noodles(which he has loved to eat since childhood) are a symbol ofhis cultural background and Korean popular culture. San Wooksays: “Conceptually, the idea of using ramen noodles as a materialwas appealing due to their cultural unambiguity. For

manyKoreans they trigger memories of family, gatherings, ceremonies,and place. Reflections on their formal, transformative,and innate ability to conjure up visions of my homeland inspiredme to implement them as a narrative device in a new series ofworks. Formally, the noodles are contained chaos. Within eachsquare block lies a seemingly controlled universe composed ofa matrix of edible, soft, organic lines. Once cooked however,they are unbound and transform into a whirling composition ofsoft, lyrical lines.”Sang Wook Lee grew up and was educated in South Koreawhere he received both a BFA and an MFA from Dong-AUniversity in Busan. Subsequently, he came to the US andearned an MFA from University of Georgia in textiles. His recentexhibitions include “The Mass Killing of Pigs, 2012”, Kyoto,Japan; “Ramen noodle 2012”, Korean Culture Center, NewYork, NY; “VI International World Textile Art Biennial ofContemporary Textile Art, Mexico City, Mexico; “Noodle Noodle”at Emory University, Atlanta, GA; “Ramen Noodle 2008” atMOCA, Jacksonville, FL and “Pojagi-2007 CheongjuInternational Craft Biennale” at Cheongju Craft Museum,Cheongju City, South Korea.
