“I wanted to put all my blues in this square frames and wished my world outside of the frames would be happy. “

Michelle Lee works vary from painting, sculpture, video where materiality of a human body and thoughts about human condition in relation to the human body are explored. The installations displayed in the show embody (the) idea(s) regarding the fascination of the space, divided and outside of our individual skin, as an extension of one’s own body and mind. The human body, encapsulated as the negative space separate from the space outside of the human skin, in tandem with human conditions—including/such as longing, companionship, loneliness, insatia- ble desire of being loved / accepted, and the inclined involvement of bodies to one another.
