Katie Lee lives and works in Melbourne. She graduated from RMIT with a Master of Visual Arts in 2009 and has also studied postgraduate education and urban planning. Lee’s practice is interdisciplinary and is often an exploration of the physical and psychological experience of the built environment. She is interested in the continuum of body and architecture that defines our movement through urban space. Her sculptural and architectural installations incorporate the performative, balancing the visual language of institutions with a sideways humour that challenges their function.
