FORMS Gallery is a dynamic structure for working with artists.  It was founded by Anthea Buys in 2021 and works closely with ten artists, most of whom are in the early stages of their careers. 

FORMS draws on gallery, institutional and independent curatorial models, presenting a programme that takes shape through a combination of online and in-real-life manifestations. At the heart of this programme are ongoing collaborations with artists who make work that is critically, aesthetically and politically important. Also central to the FORMS ecosystem are connections with like-minded spaces, people and organisations.

Tzung-Hui Lauren Lee is a South African-Chinese artist and a recent graduate of the BA Fine Art programme at the Wits School of Arts in Johannesburg. Her installation-based practice is embedded in processes of paper-making, calligraphy, and sculpture and, is occupied with the translation of two-dimensional mark-making, such as writing, to three-dimensional space. Lee is deeply influenced by aspects of Chinese philosophy and culture, including traditional Chinese folk art, which she draws on to investigate ideas around diaspora, identity and relationships between the past and the present. Her large-scale paper-objects, which are crossed by calligraphic designs that resemble floating ash, refer to the cycles of life, nature, the body and “psychophysical energy”. She describes her practice as a “means to decolonise, rethink, and understand my identity and the spaces surrounding my body”. Lee is currently an artist-in-residence at the Leipzig International Art Project (LIAP) in Leipzig, Germany.
