Taking place throughout various spaces within the library building, the artist has written and produced a new song combining words and phrases from forgotten books as part of her touring project, Always something moves.

In her new body of work, Lee considers the connection between landscape and memory. Exploring places and spaces of contemplation and the act of remembering, she reflects on her father’s dementia and a shift in familial roles and relationships.

A solo exhibition of new video, text and photographic works will be presented at Bankley Gallery, Manchester launching on Friday 21 February 2020.
