Sammy Lee & M. J. HardingCA/KR/UK+UK

Sammy Lee is a Canadian-born Korean artist based in London whose practice arises from a desire to connect with the enduring themes of human existence, particularly the framing of bodies, technology and ritual. She focuses on collaborative, long-form, kaleidoscopic projects with a commitment to the unknown. Her work has spanned audiovisual artworks, CGI film, real-time simulation, and light installation, with a process that seeks to create complex visceral worlds that can be encountered across a range of formats—from the screen, to live immersive experiences, to site-specific architectural interventions.

M. J. Harding is a music producer and composer from London. His work has found its home in a variety of media.

Sammy Lee & M. J. Harding CA/KR/UK+UKSONG

Sammy Lee’s SONG unpacks the global phenomena of K-pop into a multi-faceted narrative that contextualises the genre’s success against a backdrop of post-war trauma, globalization, Cold War ideology, and Korean cosmology. Weaving together found footage and CGI animation with a soundtrack by M. J. Harding, SONG moves between states of spiritual purity and digital psychosis, charismatic idols, suicides, customizable light sticks, and the IMF crisis.
