Kheng-Li Wee

Singapore

Born 1971.

Kheng-Li Wee works in photography but was trained as a painter with a degree in Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania and Master of Fine Art from San Francisco Art Institute, California. Fascinated by memory and dwelling as manifested in architecture and urban spaces, Wee navigates through ancient, narrow, old streets and neighbourhoods. By using photography as a process of seeing and recording, Wee seeks to pose philosophical and existential questions regarding the possibilities of seeing beyond the limits of concept and language. His work allows the viewer to glance into the intimate stories and traces of nuances in everyday situations.
