Adrian Lee, Banderol, Mixed Media, 2008.
Adrian Lee works in video, performance and sculpture. Lee identifies the insidious meanings which abound in the visual and verbal material which commonly surrounds us. The trappings of a commercial culture, which form the background noise to our daily lives, are reworked and re-examined in Lee’s darkly humorous practice which explores the processes of communication and persuasion used on micro and international scales. He turns over the rock of clichéd banality to reveal the wriggling worms and scurrying beetles of mercantile motivation below.
