Janet Lee (born in Australia) lives and works in Hong Kong.  She has an MFA from RMIT University and a BA Communication from the University of Technology, Sydney. Using photography and text, she creates imagined realities which play with the tension between fact and fiction. She engages with ideas about power, privilege, desire and authenticity in order to understand how we live today and what ideas are worth pursuing. Lee considers the possibility of creating an authentic life, which requires an exploration of both our interior selves and our exterior social context.
Lee has exhibited in Hong Kong, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Uruguay in places such as the Pao Galleries at the Hong Kong Art Centre; the Art Rooms at King’s College, Cambridge; Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Brooklyn; Satchel Projects, New York; Studio 9D, New York; Peoria Art Guild, Peoria, Illinois; studioFive, Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne; and Museo Alejandro Berro, Mercedes, and Museo Maeso, Villa Soriano, Uruguay.  Her work is in collections in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Lee recently completed artist residencies at the School of Visual Art in New York (2020) and the Royal College of Art, London (2021 and 2023).
Lee is also a member of the I Found U collective, an international group of interdisciplinary artists dedicated to artistic discourse and collaboration.
