Long concerned with the privatization of public space in Hong Kong, Lee Kit has sought both to occupy and to withdraw, alternating between interaction and interiority. He salvages the imprints of our bodies—stains, shadows, scrawled words—with simple materials like cotton or cardboard, creating works that overlap multiple genres, at once domestic still lifes and landscapes, self-portraits, and history paintings.


Kit has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and S.M.A.K. in Ghent. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the New Museum in New York and Tate Modern in London, among others. He represented Hong Kong at the 55th Venice Biennale.
