Wan Lee

Since graduating from college, Wan has continued to produce works that examine the relationships between social systems and individuals. The artist’s interest in production methods and labor led in 2013 to the inception of a series entitled Made In, which captured the artist’s performance activities at production sites around the world. This series, which began with “one breakfast,” identifies structural points at which ordinary daily life is interconnected with global political economic contexts, especially against the backdrop of modern history and the industrialization of Asian regions in this globalized era. In representing countries’ industrialization processes, he highlights the structures hidden within our daily life by revealing the points that connect an individual’s life with the world.
