Jennifer Tee meets COBRA*
2015
Kunstverein Amsterdam

Pierre Alechinsky, Asger Jorn, Frits Lemaire & Eugène Brands, Jennifer Tee, Raoul Ubac, Reinhoud
 i.c.w. The Cobra Museum of Modern Art


Tee together with Kunstverein and the Museum have selected historic and lesser-known works from the museum’s collection creating an intimate exhibition. The associations and cross-historical pollination between selected works from the Cobra and Tee allow Tee’s work to enter into a conceptual and formal discussion with specific pieces and specific concerns. The selection was based on a parallel that can be drawn between the works, most notably in their use of ethnographic sources. As well as the role of the shaman, the magician – which overlaps in all works.
