Working predominantly with photography, installation and artists’ books, Sophie Lee explores social structures and the roles we assume within them. Investigating the idea of institution, her work considers themes of domesticity, education and ritual.
Examining frameworks that have the potential to support or confine the shaping of our identities, Lee builds fractured narratives through the construction of place, character and action. Creating temporary arrangements using ephemeral material; she illustrates the awkward fragility of an object or subject at the point of flux.
Sophie Lee is a visual artist based in Manchester. Born in Scunthorpe, Lee graduated with a BA in Photography (First Class Honours) from the Manchester School of Art in 2010, going on to work as an artist and educator.
Lee has exhibited internationally most recently at SIM House in Reykjvavik, Iceland (2015), in group show ‘Loose Space’, Vienna, Austria (2015) and solo show ‘Any Structured Pattern’ at the Progr in Bern Switzerland (2014). She has undertaken artist residencies in Finland, Iceland and the UK.
