'Originally we thought they might have found a new horizon, and had been double-crossed by the company, or else they'd faked their deaths so they could continue the investigation under the radar, but now this other time zone means we must start thinking in completely different directions.'

Telephone Booth presents a new work by Serena Lee, Loud and Clear, a performance for voice, video, walkie talkies, and interrupted visibility. This will be Lee's first solo presentation in the Netherlands. Real-time becomes unhinged in this long-distance fiasco, as we are doomed to track a shifting horizon with outdated equipment and no reliable means of measurement. Everything rests on the hope that on a clear day, you can see forever.

Serena Lee is a third-generation Chinese-Canadian artist, based in the Netherlands. Layering video installation, bargain bin detritus, performance, and text, Serena's practice is driven by an unwieldy, exuberant fascination with musical form as a grammar for the political. She has exhibited, screened, and performed in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Serena received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Ontario College of Art & Design, studied Interactive Media at the Tampere Polytechnic University in Finland, and holds certification from Canada's Royal Conservatory of Music in piano performance. She is currently completing a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.

Telephone Booth is supported by the Piet Zwart Institute - Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam University
