Lee Kit - A Small Sound In Your Head


September 4, 2016
The art of Hong Kong artist Lee Kit opens up a zone between sculpture, painting, and object that is both poetic and able to be experienced in spatial terms; its fragility reflects the artist’s youth and life in a hybrid culture situated midway between Asia and Europe. He incorporates elements of language and pop music into his paintings on picnic blankets, kitchen towels, tablecloths, curtains, and cardboard, combined with ready-mades and videos.
Although his work radiates the atmosphere of everyday domesticity, he it also expresses his views on social and political situations. These works, in subtle pastel tints, do not speak loudly but whisper a re ned perspicacity.
