Announcing Cai Jun Lee’s Exhibition “Way of Life”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Way of Life by Cai Jun Lee on December 23 (Saturday) & 24 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Cai Jun Lee received her Master of Art in Contemporary Art Practice at Edinburgh College of Art (2012). She completed a Diploma with distinction from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts with a major in ceramic and minor study in sculpture in 2006, under the scholarship from Singapore National Arts Council. She is a multidisciplinary visual artist who works with sculpture, ceramic, installation, illustration and photography.

Being drawn to the world of narratives and their anthropological influences, Cai Jun adapts the connecting element, symbolical imagery and motif, revised and creates narrative with modern day interpretations. Her works aim to blur the perceptual boundaries between object and space.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

I am intrigued by the cultural practices and the ways of living in Itoshima. I intend to incorporate this with my personal research on the connection between narratives and cultural anthropology influences.
