NI­COLA LEES

Neue Luxury - - News -

The cut­ting-edge Bri­tish cu­ra­tor has en­cour­aged artists to switch dis­ci­plines and con­vinced sculp­tor He­len Martin to ven­ture into film­mak­ing and pho­tog­ra­pher Beck Beasley to pur­sue per­for­mance art. Her in­no­va­tive slant is ev­i­dent through her cus­tody of the 2015 Ljubl­jana Bi­en­nial of Graphic Arts in Slove­nia, which in­cluded a cathe­dral sculp­ture float­ing down a river, his­tor­i­cal draw­ings mor­phed into ki­netic ob­jects and street­lights hacked by new me­dia pro­grams. Lees also tack­led Lon­don’s pres­ti­gious Frieze Projects from 2013–2015.
