I Revolt

2009
Galerie Fons Welters

In the performative work I REVOLT (1 + 2), Tee shows a cast of her own arm in silicon resin in a challenging pose towards the famous Dutch designer chair Revolt. In I Revolt (1), the Revolt chair rests on the inner side of Tee’s arm, in I revolt (2), Tee’s arm grasps a chair leg in a commanding gesture. This series shows on the one side the attempt of her mind to resist the matter, on the other side Tee wants to expose and oppose the trend that more and more designers want to take hold of the artist’s reins.
