Rona Lee
Professor of Fine Art, Northumbria University

Professor of Fine Art Dr Rona Lee is an artist based in London; she works in a process - based and responsive manner, combining performance, photography, sculpture and video with techniques from other disciplines, as well writing on the capacity of artistic methods to support new forms of critical thinking. Recent work is shaped by a concern with the politics and aesthetics of Geo-materiality along with the human / non-human entanglements of the Anthropocene. In Love with the Lithosphere - (Florence Trust) 2019 'remixed' landscape imagery from mid-century postcards and travel books - imaginatively mining the legacies of that once bright future to reflect on contemporary eco - relations. Previous projects - the lines no longer hold, (Galerie Nord, Berlin) 2017 and That Oceanic Feeling, (John Hansard Gallery) 2012 have explored the sea as a material and discursive space. In 2017 Lee was selected from an international submission to create A Necessary Darkness, a video-mapped light projection on to the Renzo Piano-designed (NEMO) Science Museum, Amsterdam, (Amsterdam Light Festival) which was seen by over people 900,000 people. She is currently researching museum Geological collections from a post-human perspective. Lee is a member of the steering group for Artquest a National Portfolio Organisation which works to support professional artists across their careers and also of the AHRC Peer Review College.
