Artist

Serena Lee

Serena Lee layers cinema, performance, voice, image and text to map a political grammar of harmony. Modeling belonging and power through polyphony, she practises and collaborates internationally. With the Read-in research group she explores the embodied, situated, and political aspects of collective reading aloud. Serena holds an MFA from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and Associate Certification in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music of Canada. Active with various Canadian cultural organizations, she works as an educator in Experiential Learning at OCAD University. Serena is third-generation Chinese-Canadian and was born in Toronto.
