Kwong Lee


Lee’s art practice attempts to question the dogma of authenticity and to engage with both affinity and difference. He has exhibited videoworks on home cooking and migration; collaged tablemats and postcards of imagined Chinese immigrants; an ongoing collection of ‘Transpennine Memorabilia’ bought from second hand shops; participatory work such as a game of ‘Chinese Whispers’ using digital equipment; and installations exploring perceptions of Chinese food abroad and street food. He has also performed as a street food hawker and a ‘blue-collar’ portrait artist.
 
He has exhibited at Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, Urbis (Manchester), Chinese Arts Centre (Manchester), Unit 2 Gallery (London Metropolitan University) and 1a Space (Hong Kong).
