Part street photography, part performance art.
Nikki 5. Lee: Projects, is part street photography, part
performance art. In a series of extraordinary transformations, this young, Korean-born conceptual
artist unfolds a multiplicity of lives and identities
documented through the lens of her point-and-
shoot camera as she becomes a young punk in the
East Village, a Connecticut-based exotic dancer, or a
senior citizen picking through thrift stores in
Murray Hill. Nikki S. Lee is a Korean-born photographer currently based in New York City. Her work has
been shown in museums and galleries worldwide,
including the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in
San Francisco, the Stephen Friedman Gallery
London, and Gallery Gan, Tokyo. Solo exhibitions
will open at the Museum of Contemporary
Photography, Chicago, and the Institute of
Contemporary Art, Boston, this summer.
