My practice seeks to urgently place, archive and remember Hong Kong in my body to survive our erasure. I investigate bodily boundaries as political boundaries through sculptures, installations and performances. I am guided by the layers of my body as a meeting of place and histories: Rocks and Bones as deep past, Sea and Flesh as recent past, Land and Skin as present and Sky and Hair as futures. I use this time-body-place lens to perform acts such as cleansing, eating and peeling that activate bodily dispersions. I then collect these bodily materials, including saliva, sweat, hair and skin to form sculptures. I am invested in transparent, almost invisible, materials as a mask that both protects and erases me in the post-colonial contexts of Australia and Hong Kong.
Since graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts with first class honours in 2021, I have performed solo works at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Arts, and Performance Space amongst others. I have also performed collaborative works and exhibited in group shows across PACT, Casula Powerhouse, pari, firstdraft and Art Gallery of NSW. Most recently, I was a finalist for the NSW Emerging Artist Fellowship (2023) by Artspace and Create NSW. I currently work and live on unceded Eora Nation.
