Lee Kai-Chung

b.1985, Hong Kong
lives and works in London (UK)

Lee Kai-chung is a research-based artist who performs artistic research about people and their affect dissolved in history and ideologies. From his early explorations of archival systems for historiography, Lee has developed an archival methodology that extends to interdisciplinary research-based creative practices, including critical fabulation, publishing, archives-making and public engagement. In 2017, Lee initiated a hexalogy of consecutive projects under the theme of Displacement–expanding the perception of the notion to affective, anachronic, transgenerational and geopolitical aspects of human conditions entangled in the problematics of Eurasia.

Lee was awarded Honourable Mention in Sharjah Biennial 15 and Taoyuan International Art Award respectively in 2023; The Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography from Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology of Harvard University in 2022, he received Altius Fellowship from Asian Cultural Council in 2020 and the annual Award for Young Artist (Visual Arts) from Hong Kong Arts Development Council in 2018. Lee’s works are in the collection of M+ museum in Hong Kong and Sharjah Foundation.
