Sandra Eula Lee: Slow Burn

Sandra Eula Lee

February 1–April 28

Sandra Eula Lee is a multidisciplinary artist who transforms familiar objects and materials to disrupt assumptions related to permanence. She questions fixed states and orientation, sometimes reframing her materials and at other times altering their chemistry through the application of heat, fire, or fermentation.

Lee often uses industrial materials in her sculptures, including bricks, concrete, electrical wire and other materials of construction. She recombines them with hand-made forms in her sculptures and installations, exploring changes made to the built environment. For this presentation, Lee creates a new version of her Portable Pond, inspired by the ponds located within East Asian gardens. She conceives the garden as a space of contemplation, reflecting its surroundings.

Slow Burn has been made possible with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and an Individual Artist Award from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Lee's work has been exhibited internationally, including a 10-year survey at The Hilliard Museum in Lafayette, LA; Art Space Pool in Seoul, South Korea; the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College, Inside-Out Museum in Beijing; DadaPost in Berlin; Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University; Smack Mellon in Brooklyn; Goucher College in Baltimore; and recently at the Delaware Contemporary and Ethan Cohen KuBe in New York.
