KEEPING BUSY

Pursue the Holy Grail. For this journey you must ready yourself; you must be dressed as Mary Magdalene in a bikini, sunglasses, and as much gold as you can find. Jewelry should weigh on your neck and ears, and your body must be close to the sun. Go outside. Stand on your balcony. Float to the clouds. There you will find a gate guarded by thirty-six Templars; they will ask you twelve riddles; these are holy numbers. They are beyond us. These riddles come from a dark oasis, discovered centuries ago and buried deep in our memories. They smell of almonds, peaches, and myrrh. If your resolve is strong, if you are learnéd, they will lean in close; they will breathe on your neck, and they will whisper a secret into your ears. Drink from the grail.

Kendra Yee is a Toronto-based artist, designer, and curator. Be it ceramic sculptures; a visual language so spectacularly rich in its mark-making or the whimsical realization of these characters in clay.Yee centres her practice around the exploration of her lived experience, in conjunction with collective memory. In such a way, she forms childlike, almost speculative worlds, where fluid characters come to life, no longer confined to the planes of the second-dimension, but corporeal, tactile beings. Yee attended the Ontario College of Art and Design University until 2017 and most recently, was an artist in residence as well as exhibited at Juxtaprojects in NYC (2019). In addition she has worked on a few recent projects which include; editorial illustration, branding, art direction, workshop programming and site specific installations.
