Yee I-Lann

Yee I-Lann

Born: 1971

Hometown: Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

Based in: Kuala Lumpur

Yee I-Lann (b. 1971, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysian Borneo) lives and works in Kuala Lumpur. She graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Arts (Visual Arts) in 1993 with a major in photography and a minor in cinematography. Her primarily photomedia-based practice speculates on issues of culture, power and the role of historical memory in our social experience. Such layers necessitate an extensive and multi-layered visual vocabulary drawn from historical references, popular culture, archives and everyday objects. Yee also works as a production designer for feature films.
Her work has been exhibited in museums and international biennials. Recent exhibitions include Yee I-Lann: 2005–2016 at Ayala Musuem, Manila (2016); Like the Banana Tree at the Gate, Tyler Rollins Fine Art, New York (2016); Sous la Lune / Beneath the Moon, Institue of Contemporary Art, Singapore (2015); Jakarta Biennale: Neither Back Nor Forward: Acting In The Present, Curated by Charles Esche and Irma Chantily, Gudand Sarinah, Indonesia (2015); Picturing The Nation, Curated by Valentine Willie, Ilham Gallery, Malaysia (2015); Tabled, Silverlens Galleries, Gillman Barracks, Singapore (2014), and; Picturing Power, Tyler Rollins Fine Art, New York (2014).

She was a member of the curatorial team for the 2013 Singapore Biennale and is the first Malaysian contemporary artist to hold a solo exhibition at the Ayala Museum in Manila.
