Carl Lee

Exhibition Opening and Artists' Talk

Carl Lee is a media-based artist whose practice includes varied approaches to moving image media—single channel abstract video and documentary, multi-channel formal experiments, immersive installations—but involve an abiding interest in the everyday. Close observation, he believes, may make these moments begin to speak. There's magic in the mundane and he aspires to reveal some of it in moving pictures. His latest project involves countering images of the mundane with interactive constructions that explore the insecurities of our interior worlds. Part of Lee's pending project at Hallwalls will include the construction of a viewing device—something akin to an elongated corridor—to present and activate his selected images, drawing the viewer into a physical viewing relationship with the objects and symbols that explore tangents of personal, familial, and cultural identity.
