Closing event with a performance by Jennifer Tee
Sunday, 25 November, 3 pm
At the last day of the exhibition the installation of Jennifer Tee will be “activated” once again by two performers with a specially developed choreography. The performance is part of the installation Star-Crossed (2010-2012), in which artist Jennifer Tee deals with various notions of “transformation” and transitional rituals, contrasting with the shapes of her vases made at the Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute in Jingdezhen, China. With her choreography, the artist refers to various movement traditions, from modern dance to traditional asien disciplines such as yoga and tai chi, making reference to the titles of the vases. In her performance installation, Jennifer Tee reflects on the ambiguity of a life inbetween different cultures, which can never be completely separated from each other, but rather cross each other. It is an impressive example of Tee’s art practice, bringing together seemingly incompatible cultural backgrounds in a complex work-space constellation.
Last chance to see the exhibition after the performance.
