Lee Kit
Born in Hong Kong, China 1978, lives and works in Hong Kong and Taipei, Taiwan. He obtained an MFA in 2009 at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and in the same year was one of the finalists for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize 2009-10. Lee Kit’s practice spans a broad range of media, including painting, drawing, video, installations and hand-painted cloths. Lee’s signature pastel palette translates and enhances the apparently cryptic but profound investigations and reflections on the habits and traces that shape the practice of everyday life, with the array of ever-changing emotions that it encompasses. His solo exhibitions include: “Lee Kit: Hold your breath, dance slowly”, Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis (2016); “A Small Sound in Your Head”, S.M.A.K., Gent (2016); “You (you)”, Hong Kong Pavillion, The 55th Venice Biennale, Venice (2013); “Every Breath You Take”, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai (2012). His work has been included in several group exhibitions at Kathmandu Triennial (2017); PAC, Milan (2015); New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2015); UCCA, Beijing (2013); MoMA, New York (2012); Tate Modern, London (2010).
