LEE Yongbaek

Born in 1966 in Gimpo, based in Seoul

Representative artist of the Korean Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011

NFT Museum: The Thinker (2022)

Inspired by Rodin's The Thinker, Lee Yongbaek's latest work NFT Museum: The Thinker is a sculpture covered with a blue screen. The artist selected one frame from his video depicting the disappearance of centuries-old masterpieces and transformed it into a sculpture. Covered with the Blue Screen of Death which appears on the computer while it has a serious error, the sculpture questions the eternity and ideal beauty of an artwork.
