Philip Lee is a performance artist whose naked body is his essential medium;
this is reflected in his photographs, films, books and ceramic sculpture. He performs for camera, making photographs and films.
His books of photographs, both solo and collaboratively with Cally Trench, are in the collections of the
Tate, V&A and British Library in London, and the Kunstbibliothek, Berlin and MICA, Baltimore.
Recent exhibitions include Future Legacies: Collections, Collecting and Artists' Books, The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, Leeds University (2017), Cally Trench / Philip Lee: Artists' Books, Ravensbourne, London (2017-18); Draw/Bridge, Zug/Brücke, curated
by Alex Dewart in 2017 in Berlin (March) and London (August); and Festal Favours at Charlbury, Oxfordshire, curated by Clare Carswell (2017). Philip Lee has an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins. His research at the European Ceramics Workshop Centre (EKWC) in The Netherlands in 2014 focused on the overlap of performance and ceramics.
