Feng-Ru Lee’s practice is rooted in her Far-East Asian Cultural background, her work crosses a range of different media and often-incorporates video, two dimensional works, performance and installation. Toying with ideas of mass production and genetic engineering, Lee’s practice is often seen as both a critique and an attempt to understand the seemingly controversial issues involved in the state of the contemporary human condition. Lee explores ideas that centre on the status of the transition/migration between cultures and humanity, whilst also addressing notions of the materialisation of objects and beings. Subjects such as Eastern philosophy and Western science that seem immediately differential hold intrinsically deep and thought provoking issues for both the artist and viewer.


Lee has exhibited throughout the UK, Taiwan and internationally including the USA, Middle East, Japan, and across Europe. She was the winner of the prestigious Taipei Prize in 2000. In 2001 she represented Taipei, Taiwan in an artist residency programme between Taipei and Jerusalem. Lee has also completed residencies in Berlin and recently at the New Art Gallery Walsall. Recent exhibitions have included: Flux Fest at VIVID, Birmingham, Jam: Cultural Congestions in Contemporary Asian Art at South Hills Park, Shift Time - The Festival of Ideas in Sherwsbury and a joint Solo Exhibition at Entrance Gallery in Prague, Czech Republic.
