One of Singapore's most prominent performance artists, Lee Wen produced a body of provocative, thought-provoking and sharply satirical works over three decades. Despite Singapore's decadelong proscription of funding for performance art, Lee Wen was indefatigable, pioneering the art form with searing expressive intensity. He confronted identity politics and issues of race, society and culture through a wide-ranging series of expansive, experimental performances Presented in this title are writings, lyrics and drawings from Lee's extensive archives, offering personal insight to the rich associations, metaphors and tongue in-cheek humour found in Lee's imaginative world.
