I am a Hong Kong-Australian emerging artist based on Eora Nation. I make sculptures, installations and performances through bodily memories as a means to process and ultimately survive trauma. I activate intimate materials through the lens of hair, skin, flesh and bones, often performing with them and forming sculptures from their residues. In my performance practice, I focus on acts of cleansing, hair-cutting, eating and peeling as a reclamation of cleansing from the warfare of cultural erasure and assimilation, both in Hong Kong and Australia. My practice aims to reveal the slippages between the material and the physical as metaphors for the boundaries between the personal and the political.
Since graduating from BFA honours in 2021, I have had solo performances at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA), Performance Space, PACT and Tuggeranong Arts Centre. I have also collaborated with other artists and performed at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Pari and Incinerator arts centre. My installations and sculptures have also been exhibited across firstdraft, KEPK gallery, 107 Projects amongst others. I have been awarded the Create NSW small projects grant twice as well as the residency award at Hatched 21, PICA and Sydney Fringe Festival.
