Яachel Lee

Mixed Media + Photography + Performance Art + Textiles/Fibre

Яachel Lee’s art sheds light on the experience of navigating through familial bonds, love, loss – life as a neurodiverse Chinese Canadian Catholic woman in a post-truth era. Through reflection and acceptance of her conflicting views, Lee investigates the shared experience of self and her contemporaries in terms of personal, cultural, and religious identities.

As a practitioner, Lee primarily engages with sculpture and installation, performance, photography, and textiles/fibre – she has a particular fascination with belief and the creation of expectation in the ritual.

A law student at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at UBC and previous law graduate from the University of Edinburgh, issues of acquiring and re-performing performance art, as well as intellectual property disputes regarding AI are some of Lee’s areas of interest. While completing her BA(Hons) Intermedia Art at the Edinburgh College of Art, she was heavily influenced by Monster Chetwynd, Zoe Walker & Neil Bromwich, David Sherry, and Martin Creed. Lee has exhibited work in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hong Kong, and her hometown of Vancouver.
