Lee Bul's Confusing Set up is the Next "Infinity Room"

Could this be the next Infinity Room? From now until July 21, come to Lehmann Maupin collection in New York to encounter a mind-bending installation. South Korean specialist Lee Bul provides Via Negativa II, a network of passages with replicated areas. Protected with lighted infinity mirrors, uncomplicated will create you wonder which part is up and which part is down. Then, you'll ask yourself (hopefully, not in a panic), "How do I get out?"

Before you get into the framework the specialist has designed, you must put protective booties on over your footwear because even the ground is protected in mirrored tile.

What does it all mean? The gallery states, "The installation provides an extreme and disorienting encounter that interrupts the viewer’s perceptual and intellectual bearings, and alludes to the tenets of apophatic philosophy, which posits that heavenly characteristics is beyond the knowing of the logical individual thoughts and can only be understood by interpreting what it is not – ‘the adverse way’ – rather than what it is..."

"Through research of human/machine dichotomy, concepts of utopia embodied in architecture, and the perceptual and intellectual limitations of awareness, Lee’s performs aim to determine the boundaries of one's human whole body and thoughts, and the fallibility of the pursuit for excellence."
