The tactile quality of Lee’s materials provoke an intensified mode of viewing. Their familiar textures are set in jarring juxtaposition: the cool smoothness of metal, rough squishiness of sponge, and dull softness of paper, triggering a longing of touch in physical memory. Through this sensual fetishisation of everyday consumer objects Lee’s sculptures explore the nature of personal identity, their disposable nature highlighting the ephemeral transience and guilty pleasures of desire.
