Jennifer Tee thinks of herself as a quasi-anthropologist. Fascinated by cultural identity, rituals, and folklore, Tee creates installations, sculptures, videos, performances, and environments that tell or re-tell stories. Her works often amalgamate materials sourced from other countries—a palm tree from Brazil, bamboo from China—as the backdrop for choreography. Weaving is also a recurring theme in her works, whether in the form of spools and looms or tapestries. Her embroidery and festival-like performances fall in the direct lineage of the Situationists; she has also said that her work is influenced by Jean Tinguely’s machine assemblages, and the geometric minimalism of Ad Dekkers.
