A solo show by photographer Sean Lee
1 – 25 Jun 2011
Co-presented by the Singapore International Photography Festival
Supported by the Singapore International Foundation
Using his own family members as subjects, artist Sean Lee explores photography’s capacity as a healing device and comedic tool in his second solo exhibition at Objectifs. Intimate and at times almost voyeuristic, Homework is a revelation of the ties that bind a family together.
“I do different things with my family members in this work. “Sometimes, I use them to say something about my thoughts on faith, desires and fears. Other times, I just want to make them touch each other, which is something that is very new to us. We never touch. And then there are times when I make them do completely weird and crazy things so that we can all laugh together. That to me is one of the most magical things, making comedy with the camera.” – Sean Lee
