Lee Kit: The Voice Behind Me

Taipei-based artist Lee Kit is a hotly tipped name in his field, having represented his native Hong Kong at the Venice Biennale in 2013 and scheduled to hold solo exhibitions in both Europe and the US next year. He now stops by Ginza's Shiseido Gallery for this introductory display, which provides an overview of Lee's socially conscious creations and hints at themes like stress in urban environments and the effects of growing inequality. Manipulating materials from cardboard and cloth to everyday items such as lamps and umbrellas, Lee paints a picture of hope and optimism in the face of adversity – a notion that should resonate in today's Tokyo.
