Patrick Lee


Photographic Installation by Patrick Lee

Patrick Lee made a garden-grave yard at Para Site with real grass and dried leaves. Together with old trunks and found objects, the artist shared with the audience his spiritual journey.

He sat and ate with us. He spoke and our hearts were gladdened. But we did not recognize him till the breaking of bread. In the brokeness of our humanity, we still have difficulty recognizing him. — Patrick Lee


I’m Not What I’m by Hiram To is in response to this exhibition.
