Jenna Lee is an artist of Indigenous (Larrakia, Wardaman, and Karrajarri), Asian (Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino) and Anglo-Australian ancestry who manipulates paper to explore her many overlapping identities. Her research into ancestral cultural objects and archival practices inform an artist’s book-making practice that often imitates the display of specimens or artefacts. According to the artist, museums often present objects in which “meaning is severely cont.(ained), instead of allowing for a cont.(inued) function.”
