Lee Wen is a contemporary Singapore artist who is well-known for his work in performance art. His performances are deeply engaged in the social and political complexities of the region. This is exemplified in perhaps his most famous series, "Journey of a Yellow Man", in which he painted his body with yellow paint, a symbolic reference to his ethnic identity.

iPRECIATION is presenting a preview of Lee Wen's solo exhibition at Art Basel Hong Kong 2014 (May 15 - 18). The preview will be held in Singapore, at iPRECIATION. Selected photographs from his performances will be showcased, including 'Splash!', 'Dreamboat', 'Journey of a Yellow Man No.2', 'Journey of a Yellow Man No.11' and 'Strange Fruit'. Acrylic on canvas body prints from Lee Wen's 'Anthropometry Revision' series as well as selected drawings will also be at the preview.

Installation works which will be exhibited include 'Art vs Art' and 'Ping Pong Go-Round'. The latter, which consists of a donut shaped ping pong table, will only be exhibited at Art Basel Hong Kong 2014 in the 'Encounters' section.
