[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Khan Lee & Andrew Lee (HolyHum) – ALL IS HERE FROM NOW ON

Artist Statement

Site specific sound installation (2014)

This work by artist Khan Lee has been developed as a site specific installation inside a mysterious vault at the ALSCO laundry facility that functioned for 50 years as a place to clean and store furs. The vault has never before been opened to the public. The work is a multi-channel original sound track composed by Andrew Lee of HolyHum and recorded in collaboration with HolyHum.

  • Khan Lee was born in Seoul, Korea. He studied architecture at Hong-Ik University, Seoul, Korea, and studied fine art at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. He works in performance, media, and sculpture. His practice involves experimentation with form and process in order to express inherent relationships between material and immaterial content. He is a founding member of artist collective Intermission and a member of Instant Coffee. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Lee lives and works in Vancouver.
  • HolyHum is the new musical project of multidisciplinary artist Andrew Lee. Over the past 15 years Andrew Lee has toured extensively across North America and Europe with In Medias Res (File Under: Music) and Siskiyou (Constellation Records). He has shared the stage with Kurt Vile, Cursive, Death From Above 1979, Julianna Barwick, Damien Jurado, Frog Eyes, Porcelain Raft and many more and has performed at notable festivals such as All  Tomorrow’s Parties (London), Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Primavera Festival (Portugal) and Sled Island (Calgary). He has also presented artistic works of music at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Centre for Performance Research in New York City, and Kunstradio in Vienna.
