Sooyeong Lee

Sooyeong Lee (she/her) is a Korean-born interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Inspired by her own journey of coping uncertainty and trauma, Lee's work stems from practice of care and mindfulness.

Lee explores our collective vulnerability and resilience through food, textiles, photography, performance and installation. She examines everyday perishable objects and her surroundings, sometimes her habits, to investigate strength in their forms of changing, adapting, and aging—impermanence.

Previously trained in Illustration at Sheridan College, Lee graduated from OCAD University with a BFA in Sculpture and Installation. Lee’s work has been shown at Harbourfront Centre (Toronto) and was presented at Flotilla (Charlottetown) by Eyelevel (Halifax). Most recently she has completed her curatorial residency for Tendresse! (2022) by Caravansérail (Rimouski, QC).
