Currently on view at Galerie Fons Welters, Amsterdam is “Heart Ferment,” a solo exhibition by Jennifer Tee. Tee’s sculptures and installations hover between their concrete forms and the anticipation of a moment in which these forms could be activated, or animated in some kind of ritual meditation. Her artistic practice foregrounds the need for both opposition and balance, in order to make sense of the material world and the inner soul. Taking up the center of the main space are four delicately knitted and hand-dyed floorpieces, surrounded by ceramic cones titled ‘Selfhood Meltdown’ and ‘Sensuous Interiority’ and a balancing bamboo sculpture, ‘Spirit~Matter’. The rugs’ colour schemes form an abstract geometry that immediately goes beyond formalism, but hints at a certain expectation. Their silence seems to anticipate an action, some kind of ceremony or meditation about to take place.
“Heart Ferment” is on view through March 8, 2014.
