Star-Crossed invites poetic association. Words are stamped on ceramic vessels: ‘secret selves’, ‘recovered memory’, ‘ancestral sacrifice’ and ‘star crossed’. The last words come from astrology and refer to the inevitability of paths crossing, on human and more abstract scales. Interested in the duality of concepts and forms, Tee holds out the possibility of transcending differences and asks us to attend to deeper processes as much as origins. From how the work was made, a story emerges that weaves together diverse geographies and ancient forms of production.
