Lee Campbell is the curator of The Physics Room’s current show ‘Perseverance’. Campbell is also the brain-child behind London’s Soup Projects, where he brings together local artists and curates exhibitions of their work in non-traditional urban spaces.
Lee Campbell’s KIOSK work, Chinese Burns features a small Chinese dragon whose eyes illuminate and emanates a beguiling Chinese tune. The dragon covered in bargain price supermarket stickers is also surrounded by an enclosure of Chinese/Oriental stickers, all of which have been obtained in New Zealand. The piece examines multi-culturalism and the universal signs and codes of mass commercialism of idiosyncratic ancient old cultures.
