Jenna Lee

Jenna Lee is a Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman with mixed Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Anglo Australia ancestry. Using art to explore her many overlapping identities, Lee works across sculpture, installation, body adornment. With a practice focused on materiality and ancestral material culture, Lee works with notions of the archive and histories of colonial collecting. Lee was honoured to be the recipient of the Wandjuk Marika 3D Memorial Award at the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) and the Australia Council's Dreaming Award. She has been a finalist in national awards, including the prestigious John Fries Award for emerging and early career artists and the KWM Contemporary First Nations Art Award. Lee is represented by MARS Gallery in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia).
