Lee Ming-hsueh

 

 

 

Lee Ming-hsueh’s works often center on the objects found in the stores. He searches for alternative meanings in relation to art contexts. With a penetrating sense of humor, he reexamines and reflects upon the habitual understanding of ‘things’ indoctrinated by the media, education and society. Through reversing the usage of the objects, transforming their appearances or people’s perceptions of them, the artist is able to offer refreshing and amusing interpretations, creating relaxing feeling to asset other possibilities for the exploration of contemporary art. 
The theme of work shown in Sublimation of Boundaries International Contemporary Art Exhibition continually focuses on transforming ‘ordinary’ objects in everyday life, such as ‘coin’, ‘letter’, ‘square paper’, ‘draft paper’, etc., in terms of their size, site or function. Understanding objects by means of personal sense of humor, it rethinks those merchandises in the rigidified system of meaning, suggesting different values and significances with hilarious yet wistfully designed misinterpretations. Thus, as the artistic new meaning mingles, transforms, juxtaposes and interacts with the conventional meaning, it creates alternative understanding of the dogmatic world. In other words, it frees the surface understanding and the established experience of objects and goods, producing an unconventional significance in terms of aesthetic perspective.
