Following her 2010 performance for De Paviljoens in Almere, Jennifer Tee presents her latest performance, Gridding Sentences, in cooperation with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.  This performance will be shown twice on Sunday, October 9, 2011.  

Gridding Sentences was developed specifically for the museum context of the Stedelijk and occupies the confluence of choreography, dance, and performance. In her work, Tee explores the artistic potential of performances, events, and ceremonies, using her own special experiences of the world as a starting point. The central object in this performance is the hexagonal form of the floor, a carpet with a spectacular V-shaped pattern of lines and woven with hand-dyed wool.  The pattern resonates with a meditative atmosphere and the carpet serves as both the central stage for the performance and as an autonomous sculpture. The work is performed by Tee and four dancers,  and the complex choreography consists of an intricate series of poses and movements, creating  a space that becomes physically and mentally tangible around the shape of the floor, limning primitive, ritual, and meditative experiences. 

Jennifer Tee (1973, Arnhem) lives and works in Amsterdam. She has had several international exhibitions, including at the 2004 Sao Paulo Biennale in Brazil, the 2006 Gwanju Biennale in Korea, the Shanghai Expo 2010, and a solo show in Eastside Projects, Birmingham, UK in 2010. Tee studied at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten (National Academy for Visual Arts) from 2000 to 2001.

Gridding Sentences was made possible with a contribution from the BKVB Foundation..
