This study is on the cyborgs and monster-figures that the Korean female artist Lee Bul has created in the late 1990s, from the perspective of feminism and posthumanism. I will first contemplate her early performances using her body, and investigate the meaning of her monsters and cyborgs in the relation of women, body, and technology in dislocated time and space. With the discussing about posthuman and posthumanism, I will consequently reveal Lee Bul’s monsters and cyborgs look forward to the posthuman subjectivity.
