Lee's 'Action Art' communicates the message through the body. Art cannot be separated from life. It is not a supplement, nor an alibi, but an existence itself. Aesthetics does not become an end in itself. Art comes as poverty, privation, strain, danger, as close to life as life is to itself. And while the sign is realized completely in the form of the body itself, completely bound to itself, it is a sign of distress.
