Lee Kit

Lives and works in Taipei, China


Lee Kit’s works range from painted fabrics, installations that enclose paintings, ready-made objects, video projections, to performative works that address seemingly ordinary daily rituals. His subject matter is inherently local —— everyday life in Hong Kong, the need for memory, community and freedom, stimulating our perception of the reality and fantasy. Lee prefers generating multiple, contradictory narratives, transforming exhibition spaces and upstaging a tension between what is real and artificial, still and theatrical.

His recent solo exhibitions include “Resonance of a sad smile”, Art Sonje Center, Seoul (2019); “We used to be more sensitive”, Hara Museum, Tokyo (2018); “The Enormous Space: Lee Kit & Cui Jie Double Solo Exhibition”, OCAT Shenzhen Museum, Shenzhen (2018); His selected group exhibitions include “close”, Crane Gallery, Gaoxiong (2019);  “Something About Flowers”, Hospitality, Cologne (2018); “How to live #2 at Roppongi”, ShugoArts, Tokyo (2018);“Rehearsal”, Tai Kwun, Hong Kong (2018);

Lee Kit has been selected to represent Hong Kong at the 55th Venice Biennale, Venice (2013); is the recipient of the Art Futures Award at ArtHK in 2012, and is also one of the seven artists shortlisted for the inaugural Hugo Boss Asia Art Award in 2013.
