About the work:
Be My Pen Pal is a relational art that seeks a kind of lost intimacy in the exchange value of an art object. It is Lee's way of responding to the new era where social distancing has become the norm.
The work is made in three parts:
1. Four "making of" videos created by the artist at her studio are released online.
2. Thirty-three individually sealed 'Drawing Cards' are displayed alongside the materials used to make them.
3. Terms of agreement: If the viewer would like to open one of the sealed envelopes to see the Drawing Card, which then is the viewer's to keep, they must agree to make their own 'Reply Drawing Card' on-site with the same materials used by the artist.
