Straddling the South China Sea, which Yee I-Lann calls the Great Borneo Sea, and with a longstanding interest in the Southeast Asian region and its global connectivities, I-Lann’s practice has cut across photomedia, text, textile, site-specific installation, and video, drawing on a broad range of knowledges and material. Her practise is often situated at the shifting nexus of power and linguistics and explores the impact of historic memory in contemporary affairs. She has in recent years been making collaborative works with Dusun and Murut inland weavers in Keningau, coastal Bajau Laut weavers at Omadal Island in Semporna as well as collaborating with urban dancers and filmmakers in Kota Kinabalu city [1].
