Ahram Lee

Born in 1980

Lives and works in Marseilles

Ahram Lee rigorously constructs his oeuvre by developing a spare formal vocabulary. The different materials she uses (objects, bits of glass, scraps of paper...) are put at the service of minimum concepts and experiments. So, more than techniques in the strict sense of the term, we might say that it is first of all time, language, chance, breath, error and invisible forces that construct this art, which is sensitive to its immediate environment.
What is involved for the artist is working in the layers of the infinitesimal, acting with regard to the "barely visible". In so doing, she plays with discrete mechanics which lend these works essential forms. In this desire to create with little, "Posing" is Ahram Lee's main gesture, "less as a goal, more as a principle of construction and installation, like a way of doing things, and a way of being."
