Christopher Lee is an artist and curator based in Weymouth and Portland.
Working mainly in sculptural installation his practice comprises the use of found objects and images, and low cost materials. Through careful assembling and arrangement the work seeks to explore themes of value, poetic potential, surface, and reality in the modern world.
Through his work as a bursary artist with b-side and Portland Museum Christopher’s practice has taken on new aspects of community engagement and co-creation. This has resulted in a creative response to the finds from the Earl of Abergavenny (and their digitisation), which investigates the notion of the museum souvenir and its value.
Since graduating from the Arts University Bournemouth (formerly the Arts Institute) in 2009 Christopher has exhibited widely in the UK as well as internationally; including at Bow Arts, Bearspace, and ArtsLav in London, and the Primo Piano Gallery in Lecce, Italy. He has curated Arts Council funded exhibitions and events at the Lighthouse Gallery in Poole, b-side festival on Portland (with the New Curators), and in vacant shop spaces around Weymouth.
