A surprising encounter
While taking care of my mother recently, I found great beauty and comfort in Franz Schubert’s Lieder. Through the singers selected for this project, I hope to share this beauty with you who have come to visit this gallery. If offered one of these songs as a gift, please accept the encounter and allow the experience to transform you.Lee Mingwei

Sonic Blossom at the Ateneum is made possible by the Ministry of Culture, ROC (Taiwan).
Taiwanese-American artist Lee Mingwei (born 1964) creates participatory installations, where strangers explore issues of trust, intimacy, and self-awareness, and one-on-one events, in which visitors contemplate these issues. Lee’s projects are often open-ended scenarios, taking on different forms with the involvement of participants and change during the course of an exhibition.
