Jenna Lee

Jenna Lee is a Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman with mixed Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Anglo-Australian ancestry. Jenna works across sculpture, installation, and body adornment to explore these overlapping identities.

"I think the biggest hurdle for a lot of my community is the feeling of space not being for them, but something that Craft has done, especially through the dedicated First Nations show... is slowly open that door.

It's been this very considered and gentle process around making sure that community felt welcome, that their families felt welcome, that the artists felt welcome."
