About

Jennifer Tee’s (1973) works comprise sculpture, installation, performance, photography, and collages, all with a wide-ranging underlying frame of reference. Of central importance is Tee’s interest in the in-between state of what she calls the soul in limbo*. The soul in limbo is restless and alive, and caught in an unnamed place – a conceptual, mental, psychological, and physical space – on the border between the here and the possible. Tee also researches contemporary life, with its cross-cultural identity and narratives, its instability and complexity, and its potential for the loss of identity, language, and kinship with original cultures. In addition, Tee explores various forms of utopian concepts of life and their potential for creating a new and more beautiful and soulful world**. With her work, she encourages the contemplation of life’s fragile connections, evoking spiritual realms with active material experimentation.

* The Soul in Limbo derives from André Breton’s novel Nadja from 1928.

** The ethnographer Claude Lévi-Strauss describes in Tristés Tropiqués (1955) his definition of an ideal society: “…a society that no longer exists, possibly never has existed, probably never will exist, but of which we should nonetheless have a clear conception, in order to be able to assess our current situation.”
