In Untitled (Can Sculpture) Lee’s materials take on a performative dimension, their readymade shapes and loaded meanings creating an image with evocative narrative innuendo. Here a crunched soda can, magnifying glass, and a lump of coal dangle above a man’s face like a crude appendage; the lens is fixed on the face as libidinous source. Hanging from the portrait, a well-worn sock – the ‘handy’ accessory of teen boys everywhere – limply dangles with the promise of polishing a diamond from the hunk of rough.
