Traversing across a variety of genres including performance, sculpture, and video, Wonwoo Lee’s work refreshingly evokes the familiar and banal fragments of everyday life through his unique humor and wit. 

Lee’s long-held subject of interest has been the exploration into the ultimate ‘anxiety’ that occupies the human 'life'. As a way of dealing with ‘anxiety’, Lee proposes the conditions of such ideological work through the ideas of 'luck / dance / giant / future'. 

Rising star (white) was part of the artist’s 2017 solo exhibition at PKM Gallery, Seoul, How’s the weather tomorrow?, which shed light on the meaning of ‘luck’ in concept and ‘icons’ related to this concept witnessed in reality.
