Biography

Chinese version

Born in Hong Kong, Fiona Lee obtained her Bachelor of Arts majoring in Critical Intermedia Laboratory from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. Her works of art are derived from the intersection between installation and performance. Her recent art practices and inspirations have come from the feeling of and focus on particular moments in her daily routine,which she explores as if it were a world of adventure. Listening creates an important connection between Fiona and the world; this is when she feels the movement of every single moment. She believes her art creations represent the progress she is making in exploring and accepting her own possibilities. Her recent work focuses on the relationship between sound frequencies and electromagnetic fields.

Lee’s installations have featured at a number of art festivals, including Being There(2017) Artist residency & retreat camp,  Around Sound Art Festival 2014 (Kyoto, Japan), Transi(en)t Manila Project Glocal 2014 (Manila,Philippines), the 12th Seoul International NewMedia Festival and the 16th ifva(Interactive Media Category) Finalist Works Exhibition (Hong Kong). Her sound and light performance “delight” has been hosted internationally in Taiwan, Korea, Macau and Hong Kong. She was invited to perform at the Asian Meeting Festival 2016 in Japan, and she also takes part in improvisations with a variety of musicians & sound artists. Fiona has released her self-published album, “walking in a daze”(2016), which has collected sound works she created.

Recently, she is the member of Namiji 波寺,an artist group formed with Samson Cheung & Wong Fuk Kuen.  To widen the value of spaces with happenings & performances as the aims of forming Namji. With the findings of the sonic or acoustic characteristics of the spaces, they hope to develop new forms of performances, happenings & experiences in Hong Kong.
