Lee Bul

Lehmann Maupin Galley the massive, immersive installation Via Negativa II, By Artist Lee Bul presents a labyrinth of corridors, adorned with fragmented reflective surfaces, through which viewers must make their way before ending their #journey in a central chamber lined with brilliantly #illuminated infinity mirrors. The installation provides an intense and disorienting experience that disrupts the viewer’s perceptual and cognitive bearings, and alludes to the tenets of apophatic philosophy, which posits that divine nature is beyond the under-standing of rational human mind and can only be comprehended by defining what it is not ‘the negative way’ rather than what it is.
