In her new body of work, Lee considers the connection between landscape and memory. Exploring places and spaces of contemplation and the act of remembering, she reflects on her father’s dementia and a shift in familial roles and relationships.
A solo exhibition of new video, text and photographic works will be presented at Bankley Gallery, Manchester launching on Friday 21 February 2020.
