HeeWon Lee studied fashion before leaving Seoul to settle in France in 2002. She then studied French while pursuing her artistic activities.

She studied visual arts communication at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nancy, concluding her studies with a post-graduate degree at the Le Fresnoy – National studio of Contemporary Arts in Tourcoing. HeeWon Lee is a Multimedia Artist who developed an artistic practice where video, graphics, sound and installation meet. Her research and works readily draw upon the resources of new media and technology. Somewhere between high tech and low tech, her work is inspired by our daily life: slight movements which immerse us in a fragile world.
