In the Cobra Museum for Modern Art the exhibition The Soul in Limbo is on view until the 21th of February. It is the first museum retrospective of Jennifer Tee’s work to be held in the Netherlands. Taking the themes of ‘Language’, ‘Choreography’ and ‘Occult Geometry’, the exhibition looks back on her work’s development over the last 10 years and includes new pathways extending into the future. Jennifer Tee was also the winner of the 6th edition of the Cobra Art Prize Amstelveen.

In connection to the exhibition the monograph The Soul in Limbo, compiled by Jennifer Tee in collaboration with Hilde de Bruijn, was presented. Articles by Zoë Gray (Senior Curator, Wiels, Brussel), Maxine Kopsa (director, Kunstverein, Amsterdam) and Monica Szewczyk (co-curator, Documenta 14) interpret Tee’s work.  The publication was designed by Richard Niessen and published by Roma Publications.

The Mondriaan Fund contributed to the publication via a Grant for Publications (in Dutch: Bijdrage Publicaties). This grant is meant for visual artists and publishers for extraordinary publications about the work of living artists in the Netherlands.
