Florence Yuk-ki Lee
b. 1994, Hong Kong, China; lives and works in Hong Kong, China.
Florence Yuk-ki Lee is an animation artist. Assembling and staging ephemeral figures, lived experiences, and poetic visual metaphors in her practice, Lee unearths ideas and inspirations from her daily encounters in Hong Kong—the city where she grew up—to investigate the multi-layered connection between herself and her cultural identity. Her animation works comprize digitally hand-drawn still frames that flow seamlessly from one to another, evoking numerous micro-narratives summoned from her memories or pure imagination. Emotionally charged, Lee's work extracts the poetic from the mundane to explore the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Florence Yuk-ki Lee's recent projects include Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France (2022); Animafest Zagreb in Croatia (2022), and Fantoche International Animation Film Festival in Switzerland (2022). She was an awardee of Special Mention at Animaphix International Animated Film Festival in Italy (2022) and received the Special Jury Award at Tatsuno International Film Festival in Japan (2021).
