Tzung Hui Lauren Lee
Tzung Hui Lauren Lee (b.1998) is a multimedia, South African Chinese artist currently based in Johannesburg. Lee has also recently completed her BA in Fine Arts from the Wits School of Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand. Her practice is predominantly installation-based and emerges through the processes within digital spaces, paper-making, sculpture and calligraphy. Lee’s process continues to evolve via the act of translating two-dimensional markings (her writings) to three-dimensional space. The artist draws inspiration from various aspects within Chinese philosophy and culture which include customary Chinese folk art where she investigates ideas pertaining to personal diaspora, decolonising the self, identity and relationships across and within the past and present.
Lee’s work also forms part of the BMW Groups Private Art Collection (2021) situated at the BMW Midrand Campus, Johannesburg.
