ELIZABETH GABRIELLE LEE (b.1994, Singapore) is an artist based between London and Singapore. She recently completed a MA in Photography at the London College of Communication, London. Her practice includes photography, text and installation. Navigating the intricacies that arise out of history and memory, themes of displacement and nostalgia weave in and out of her storytelling whilst working upon central human issues such as belonging and loss. Drawing from the politics of identity, ethnography, and linguistics, her work is an attempt to re-examine the structures of recall and perception.
Lee also runs XING -a research platform centered on the poetics and politics of Southeast and East Asian art discourse. Assuming form of a shapeshifter, it morphs between localities and temporalities; with(in)flux. A domain of not-yet possibilities, the platform attempts to dismantle matrices concerned with the region from non-dominant perspectives. The inaugural self-publication of XING (2017) explores the current landscape of women in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. The photo series & publication has been featured in Dazed, Riposte, i-D Magazine amongst others. In June 2020, XING curated an online screening investigating the relationship between sound and place. Featured works include moving image & sound by six artists plus curator essays.
