Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee—A.I.

Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee is an artist based between London and Singapore. Her work navigates the nuances and intricacies that arise out of history and memory. Meditating on fractured and lost traditions, themes of displacement and nostalgia weave in and out of her storytelling. Through visual and textual interventions, she attempts an undoing of power structures and knowledge production. By negotiating the dynamic of the ‘near’ and ‘elsewhere’, her practice works to remap a singular history, steering narratives toward alternate and fluid territories.

XING—A.I.

Alternative narratives are a running theme at this year’s festival, and XING is no different. Founded by Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, XING is an online collective seeking to represent the lives of East and Southeast Asian women today. Lee established XING in order to combat societal misconceptions surrounding Asian women, specifically looking to challenge notions of fetisiation. The photography is striking—a blend of humour, eroticism and care. As XING say themselves, “We champion the vagabonds, challenge hegemony, and celebrate a oneness through imagery and prose.”
