Objects and Tool Things is a practice based research emerges from the intersection between two ongoing preoccupations: how to exhibit spatio-temporalart practices in such a way that the artwork remains ‘active’ as opposed to ‘static’ or ‘on display’; and, an engagement with the fact that reductive thinking about things in the world –from complex and interrelated to simplified and separated-out –is part of the human condition. Lee asks the question; ‘How might ‘active’ art practices challenge such reductive thinking by altering perception and habitual modes of thought?’

This exhibition comprises part of the VCA School of Art 2019 PhD Program.
