Speaking of the mixture of materials in her work, Lee Bul has said that ‘I choose what I work with carefully. Everything has connotations, stories’. Enjoying the way that different materials ‘collide’, she often places ‘something masculine next to something feminine, solid with reflective, flexible with inflexible’. Elements of this collage – not least the Zeppelin, which is visible in the bottom-right hand section of this work – reappear elsewhere in the exhibition in the form of large-scale sculptures or immersive environments.
