Hangjun Lee

Born in 1977, Hangjun Lee is a filmmaker and independent curator who also works as a programmer at EXiS in Seoul. He also curated screening & live media program such as Cinematic Divergence (2013) & Mujanhyang Festival (2014) for National Museum of Contemporary Arts (MMCA) in Seoul. His works are based on multi-projection and optical sound, often involving improvisations with a variety of artists. Since 2006 he has been working on an audiovisual research project, “Expanded Celluloid, Extended Phonograph” in collaboration with Hong Chulki, a noise improviser. Their collaboration stimulated critical investigations into the performativity of practices in the darkroom, the screening room, the private recording/ practicing studio, and the public performance spaces utilised for the improvising musician.
