Feng-Ru Lee: A Journey to Citizensheep

4 Jul, 2015 at 12:00 am - 30 Aug, 2015 at 12:00 am

In her first exhibition at New Art Exchange, Artist Feng-Ru Lee will present a body of work that features her alter ego figure ‘Millee the Sheep’. ‘Millee’ is a tribute to Dolly, the first animal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell in 1996 in Scotland. Lee relates this to her own experience of migrating to the UK from Taiwan where she found herself existing as two different identities within two very different cultures. She uses the character of ‘Milee’ to explore and express her experiences within a new culture in a playful and engaging way.

Lee has exhibited throughout the UK, Taiwan and internationally including USA, Middle East, Japan and across Europe. She was the winner of the prestigious Taipei Prize in 2000.

Join us for a special live performance as part of the exhibition
on Tuesday 7 July, 7pm – 9pm
