Dabin Lee
Galerie Beyond presents Dabin Lee into the To Be platform:

Animal testing happens daily within the 'cosmetics industry' for the sake of beauty. Dabin chose for her Ma collection the rabbit as her main subject, as it has become
synonymous with cosmetics animal testing as well as an image on cruelty-free labeling. The rabbits endure untold suffering for the beauty industry and this will be the main feature through her collection. She has been researching different techniques around the process of 'tufting'. She adapts the technique to become a more meaningful and slightly unexpected feeling when touching it. Instead of tufting with the usual materials such as wool, her brooches are made with thin metal wire. The cold and hard characteristics of metal are hidden by the visual soft fur-like aspect.

The work becomes deceiving to the spectator. The bright, humorous, colourful fur pieces are based on her drawings that portray the daily reality of the tests done on rabbits causing eye reddening, swelling, ulceration, even blindness, skin cracking and bleeding.
