DECK presents AESTHETICITY, an exhibition featuring two bodies of works by Kevin WY Lee. An ongoing project since 2014, Tapestry of Tents and Suddenly The Grass Became Greener will be exhibited for the first time.
Tapestry of Tents explores the tapestry and temporality of tarpaulin tented spaces in our land-scarce city state. White tents are ubiquitous to life and landscape in Singapore.
Suddenly The Grass Became Greener are photographs made in Singapore during her 50th year as a nation, and the coincidental death of her gardener.
Kevin WY Lee is a photographer and creative director based in Singapore. He has worked in the creative industry in Asia and Australia for almost 20 years. In 2010, he founded Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA), an influential platform for Photography & Visual Arts in Asia. Through IPA, Kevin participates vigorously in photography and art across the region as a practitioner, curator and educator.
In his own practice, Kevin is interested in Singapore – her temperament, aesthetic and growing pains. A broader canvas is marked by a curiosity in mortality, and how people cope with the finiteness of being mortal.
