Jennifer Tee’s (1973, Netherlands) sculptures are made from carefully selected natural and industrial materials. They often purposely have their origins in more than one place, and sometimes reach their completion over a period of time. Her quixotic environments can often be activated, engendering their own rituals, which, although usually inspired by the existing world, are twisted around by the artist to arouse more poetic associations. In her recent series of works, Tee combines Crystalline Floorpieces (hand-knitted rugs) with sculptural objects and choreography. These geometrical arrangements of floor pieces form negative and positive spaces, simultaneously taking up a room’s volume and cutting into it. Blending the functions of sculpture and stage, they then function as platforms for a choreography of movements and poses, establishing a relationship with the knitted object and within the beams of the crystalline form, enclosing a (female) interiority and a psychological space in which an attempt is made to align mind, body, and spirit.
