We are pleased to announce Justin Lee’s exhibition They Used To Be My Playground… かつてそこはわたしの遊び場だった until May 28 (Sun), as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura .
Justin Lee was graduated from Master of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore/Goldsmiths University of London in 2016. He was nominated for the President’s Design Award and a recipient of the Mont Blanc Young Artist World Patronage Project in 2006.
Justin is currently working on a series of motif, billboard and signage that was based on the discovery of sub-culture living in modern Japan has enable the artist to draw parallel of constructs from used/discarded objects/images to the study of people, history, contemporary culture, traditional family values that are present in their personal and social network. This trip is supported by Singapore International Foundation where it seeks to bring Singaporeans and our friends from overseas communities together, to connect and collaborate for positive change.
Here are some words from the artist himself.
I am exploring on a new series of works based on non-functioning object and how its meaning are being shaped by creators and viewers. I hope that the juxtaposition of found objects allows people to have a second look on how things are being associated and classified in today’s society.
