> DESCRIPTION

“Moving house and looking for a house: a
new home always feels like a hotel once
you move in, it feels temporary but
intimate. Somehow you don’t know when
you need to move out. But you need to
settle down, and construct your life there,
because a lot of things are happening
outside.” – Lee Kit
‘How to set up a room for Johnny?’ was
presented in the Art Statements section of
Art Basel 2011. Lee Kit created a typical
Hong Kong demonstration flat with a living
room, a toilet, a bedroom, and a small
kitchen. Various hand-painted cloths and
cardboard paintings infiltrate this domestic
prop for an imaginary character. Lee
devises a situation that delves into our
consciousness through seeing, feeling,
acting, and simply being. Like a sudden
epiphany, we are left to deal with our own
emotions and memories privately. Osage
Gallery is proud to present this exhibition
by artist Lee Kit at Osage Kwun Tong.
