Jaye Rhee Korea, b. 1973

Overview

Jaye Rhee has expressed the non-existence of images that we believe and remember as true or the uncertainty of stereotypes through her works. In particular, she explores the work of revealing the gap between reality and image, memory and fantasy, language and imagination, and looking into the background through media such as performance, video, and photography. Her digitalized works such as videos, performances, installations, and photographs, which are delicately combined with space, sound, images, and the flow of time, often require repetitive tasks or intensive manual effort in analog settings. Rhee questions the incomplete human perception system by revealing the gap between seeing and knowing, and reveals to the audience the so-called "real forgery" by dealing with virtual image as if pointing out the habitual relationship between language and image.

Jaye Rhee works in Seoul and New York. She studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture after receiving a BFA and MFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her solo exhibitions have been presented by Fulton Center in New York, (2021), Doosan Gallery in Seoul and New York (2013), Galerie Gana Beaubourg in Paris (2007). She participated in group exhibitions at Songeun (2022), Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art (2021), Daejeon Museum of Art (2021), Seoul Museum of Art (2018), Mori Museum of Art (2014). She was selected as a resident artist of Delfina Foundation, London and MMCA Changdong International Studio Program. Her works are represented in the collections of Seoul Museum of Art, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Leeum Museum, SongEun Foundation in Korea and High Museum of Art, New York Public Library and Norton Museum of Art in the US and various private collections.
