Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee


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. 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. By negotiating the ‘Us’-and-‘Them’ dynamic through visual and textual interventions, her practice works to rethink a singular history, steering narratives toward alternate and fluid territories.

Lee also runs XING, 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 volume of XING (2017) explores the current landscape of women in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
