Internationally renowned Artist

Yee I-Lann

Yee I-Lann lives and works in Kota Kinabalu, capital of the Malaysian Borneo state of Sabah. Her primarily photomedia-based art practice engages with archipelagic Southeast Asia’s turbulent history with works addressing issues of colonialism and neo-colonialism, power, and the impact of historical memory in social experience, often with particular focus on counter-narrative histories from below. She employs a complex, multi-layered visual vocabulary drawn from historical references, popular culture, archives, and everyday objects. She has in recent years started working collaboratively with sea-based and land-based communities and indigenous mediums in Sabah.
