Florence Yuk-ki Lee (b. 1994, Hong Kong) lives and works in Hong Kong. Assembling and staging ephemeral figures, lived experiences, and poetic visual metaphors in her practice, Lee unearths ideas and inspirations from her daily encounters in Hong Kong—the city where she grew up—to investigate the multilayered connection between herself and her cultural identity. Her animation works comprise digitally hand-drawn still frames that flow seamlessly from one to another, evoking numerous micro-narratives summoned from her memories or pure imagination. Emotionally charged, Lee’s work extracts the poetic from the mundane to explore the extraordinary in the ordinary.
