Lee Bul

Artistic Intervention | Manifesta 14 Prishtina

Palace of Youth and Sports, Manifesta 14 Prishtina

July 2022 - 30 October 2022

 

Lee Bul's "Willing to be Vulnerable" is now being showcased in Manifesta 14 Prishtina.

 

"Recalling the Hindenburg, which, flying under the National Socialist flag, famously burst into flames in 1937, her silver balloon embodies the vulnerability of dreams – not only to accidents, but also to political instrumentalisation and perversion." (…) "As it hovers between the soaring roof of Prishtina’s Palace of Youth and Sports – an icon of Yugoslavian socialist architecture – and the earthbound cars parked in the burnt-out sports arena below, Lee Bul’s silver balloon invites us to reflect on what we might salvage from the dreams of the past and what that might bring for the future."
