30 August–26 September 2022
Digital Video, silent, 4 minutes 3 seconds
Using stainless steel tubing and everyday objects, Yona Lee’s labyrinthine structures encourage us to consider the frameworks that shape our interaction with public and private space. Lee bisects and transforms space creating imaginary internal transport networks, homes and urban spaces. The sculptural steel configurations act as ambiguous handrails and barriers inviting viewers to lean, wait and navigate.
Yona Lee is an artist currently based in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau. Propositions was commissioned in 2021 by the Govett Brewster Art Gallery.
