Bio

b. 1986, HK.

 

The main area of research in my practice is the construction of the female self in contemporary culture. I look into familiar objects raising these questions: how is the female body represented and idealized in Western contemporary societies? What are the interactions between feminine identity and the domestic environment?

The appropriation of materials and objects of everyday life is essential to the composition of my installations. When I use such materials, I am not faithful to their original purpose. I am particularly interested in exploring the tension that arises when using cold, synthetic materials to discuss the human body and the intimate development of the self.

The process of making involves simple everyday gestures like pouring a liquid, hanging a towel/garment or placing an object on a shelf. This replication of familiar, intimate moments is intentionally apparent in the finished work, nothing is hidden.
