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, an online collective and a domain of possibilities shedding light on the trailblazing lives of East and Southeast Asian women today. XING champions the vagabonds, challenges hegemony, and celebrates a oneness through image and prose. 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.
Lee’s work was recently exhibited at Photo London 2019, Discovery Section & will premiere a new body of work at UNSEEN 2019.
