Lizzie Wee

Where or how does one belong? Lizzie Wee is a Singaporean multidisciplinary artist, designer, illustrator, art director and video editor. She has lived in many cities including Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Berlin, Boston, New York, and Singapore. She received her BFA from New York University, and her MA Fine Arts degree from the Goldsmiths programme at LASALLE College of the Arts. As an artist who explores notions of belonging and identity, Wee’s work examines the intangible and often tenuous links between where we find ourselves and the ideas of 'home'. How can we create a sense of belonging or recreate feelings of home in the places we stay, and when does the shift occur that locations can become full of meaning and memory? Her present practice-based research investigates notions of identity and belonging; through an examination of archetypal female roles found in Southeast Asian pop culture and visual media. Her works are expressed through video, performance, and writing for performance. Apart from her artistic practice, Wee has worked with Sotheby's Hong Kong, and Kitchen Hoarder, a woman-run production team focused on lifestyle and food culture.
