overview
Born in Hong Kong in 1978. Currently based in Taipei, Lee has taken part in residency programs all over the world, including the US, Europe and Asia. In his art practice, Lee utilizes various media such as projector light, videos, sounds, words and found objects, and his artworks represent the artist’s desire to continuously blaze a trail for new expressions of painting. Having been born and raised in Hong Kong, a city that has been susceptible to political turbulence, Lee has been conscious of the current socio-political climate. He incorporates intricate expressions to provide an opportunity for the viewers to reconsider their relationships with society and others, and the nature of his artwork is what makes his exhibition spaces site-specific, reflecting the ambience and emotions of each location.
Selected exhibitions: Resonance of a sad smile, Art Sonje Center, Seoul, 2019; ‘We used to be more sensitive.’, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 2018; The Enormous Space, OCAT, Shenzhen, China, 2018; Not untitled, ShugoArts, Tokyo, 2017; A small sound in your head, S.M.A.K, Ghent, 2016; Hold your breath, dance slowly, The Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis, USA, 2016; The voice behind me, Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo, 2015; ʻYou (you).ʼ, the 55th Venice Biennale, 2013.

Portfolio the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit

2020.12.25 Fri

ShugoArts is pleased to announce the completion of Portfolio, the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit. 

This group of new artworks—which plays an important role in his solo exhibition (Screenshot) currently on view at ShugoArts—is from a photo documentary that he has been posting on Facebook for the past six years. As Kit calls it a photo-documentary or photo-album, Portfolio is a record of his daily life while showing that Kit’s artistic practice is always moving forward. In this work ten images are inkjet printed on Arches watercolor paper. As befits Kit, who aims to expand “painting” by replicating images and projecting light, this group of works is printed as if it were painted on watercolor paper and can be considered as “works on paper.”

The ten prints are packaged in a folder-like box with a text written by the artist.
