Emma Bang and Valerie Tee Lee

Valerie Tee Lee (b. 1995, KR/BE) is an artist working across performance, text, and communal (care) practices. Inspired by feminist pedagogy, her research-based performance and installation practice explores situated and embodied knowledge production, amplifying subaltern voices and silenced narratives. Lee has participated in several residencies and exhibitions, including Rupert (LT), Podium (NO), M4 gastatelier (NL), P////AKT (NL), and Sim (IS). She holds a BFA from Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and currently resides in Brussels.

Emma Bang (b.1989, DK/UK) is a Danish artist working with hand dyed fabrics, narrative poetry and soft sculptures. Her works engage with the poetics of the everyday, questioning the distinction between the self and other through slow sensing and deep listening in a quest of (un) recovering embodied knowledge. She completed her MA in Fine Art at The Royal College of Art in London in 2019. Currently she is part of Fabrikken for Kunst and Design two-year studio programme. She has been presented at Rupert,( LT), Podium (NO), Lewisham Art House (UK), Galeri Golsa (NO), Galleri Tom Christoffersen (DK) and Robert Burt Gallery (UK) among many others.

During the residency at SODAS 2123 Valerie Tee Lee and Emma Bang will be preparing for the exhibition Glossary for the Wild Tongues at Atletika gallery. The exhibition will open at 29th of June.
