the soul in limbo

2016
The Cobra Museum of Modern Art, NL
6th edition Cobra Art Prize Amstelveen

The exhibition highlights various thematic aspects of Tee’s work over the past decade including the most recent developments. The exhibition’s title derives from André Breton’s novel Nadja (1928) and refers to a recurrent subject in Tee’s works: the liminal state between the real and the possible. Through a web of references to Western culture, art history, and Eastern philosophy, Tee investigates the complexity of overlapping cultures and identities. Tee’s exploration of the spiritual dimensions within her subjects of reference results in works that hover between their concrete form and their loaded potential as carriers of an anticipated action, ritual and animation. During the exhibition, several performances take place.
