Lee Kit

Born 1978 in Hong Kong (China),
lives and works in Taipei (Taiwan)

Exploring the gap between things and their representation, between the personal and the collective, Lee Kit’s “situations” seek to render perceptible emotions that elude any literal description. He explores these in-between states through the association of recurring motifs such as pop-song fragments, names of cosmetics, and slivers of images and words. Devised as a “three-dimensional painting”, Lee Kit’s intervention takes the form of an installation comprising domestic objects and paintings that feature play on light, colour and composition by means of video projections.
