Lee Kit

1 September 2016

Hong Kong/Taipei, Taiwan

In 2013, Lee Kit represented Hong Kong at the Venice Biennale, and since then his ascent has continued, with solo exhibitions at S.M.A.K., Ghent, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo – not to mention participation in numerous group shows. Trained as a painter, Kit is well-known for his works using hand-painted cloth, and his poetic installations that employ domestic objects that he subtly transforms with text, drawing, light, or other media. The artist won the Art Futures Award in the Hong Kong Art Fair in 2012 and was shortlisted for the 2013 Hugo Boss Asia Art Award.
