I-Hua Lee   李依樺 

In her body, landscape flourishes.
The woman who falls asleep anywhere, anytime
Kafka and the wonderland
Short conversation
The wonderful project
Some pauses, lights, and your backs
En route
Shifting gaze
SHe
Doll
Dinner at home
Self-portrait of a Chinese woman
Body part - Beard
I miss you

Brief biography:

 

I-Hua Lee is a visual artist from Taiwan. She has engaged body issues, gender roles and performativity in an interdisciplinary art practice. Her work seeks to transgress fixed boundaries of power in society. This involves creating theatrical stages, in which include human body casts, arranged feminine dresses, cross-dressed costumes, exaggerated backdrops, bodily expressions and performances.
Lee has exhibited her works in such venues as the Taipei Cultural Center in New York, the Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, and the Woman Made Gallery in Chicago and has participated in numerous exhibitions in Taipei, Shanghai and the United States. Lee has been a finalist in Flora & Fauna Photography Competition in 2009. Her first artist book Short Conversation was published in the same year in Taiwan. She was a project manager at artist Cai Guo-Qiang's studio and is the founder and chief editor for an independent curatorial journal Chuan Art which was launched in August 2011.

李依樺,生於台灣台北。大學主修文學,畢業後至美國紐約大學攻讀美術碩士,作品曾展出於美國紐約、新英格蘭、芝加哥、中國上海等地。曾任蔡國強工作室專案經理。著有攝影詩集《短對話》,其系列作品於2009年展於紐約台北文化中心。2010年與洪湘茹、林艾箴創辦獨立藝文刊物《船的創作誌》,擔任主編之一。其評論及專題文章散見於 artforum.ccom.cn、《藝術收藏+設計》、《觀察者─藝術生態觀測站》。現為新樂園藝術空間成員,並於台北|寶藏巖國際藝術村擔任經理。
李依樺的創作經常結合影像及文字書寫,討論女/人的夢想、幻想、身體,以及生命自主性的相關課題。從她的作品可以看到有機的互動關係,以及多重的詮釋與再現意圖。2015年李依樺的策展作品「溫柔的產出」展於台北國際藝術村百里廳,身兼藝術家與藝術行政工作者的她,邀請了同樣具備此種雙重身份的創作者參與計畫,關注藝術產業的多種面向。
