“The Wall” is a durational performance that investigates current global migration situation and human conditions through gestures and symbols. This performance seeks intersections created by experiences of immigration and globalization. it raises awareness of our current global migration crisis, looking beyond national border and our shared responsibilities as citizen of the world, and how we continue to see ourselves in each other, and how we create a space that are grounded in inclusiveness and respect for dignity and freedom we all deserve.

Husbands and I is a social performance wherein I navigate my own relationship to Western culture through one-minute and one-day relationships with white men. I started the “Husbands and I” performance in 2009 in Vancouver, where I wore a traditional Chinese dress and asked white males on streets to have photo taken with me by suggesting them to be my husbands for a minute. I have had photos with 325 men. In 2010, I posted classified advertisements describing myself as “an exotic, compliant and artistic Asian girl looking for a white husband who would like to take me to his home to live with him for a day as his mail order bride,” and recorded videos of my experiences living for one day with each ad respondent.

“To Begin” investigates social transformation through repetition and labor. In this work, the stack of books is the burden of both history and unsustainable civilization. In our current social climate, collapse seems inevitable. This performance demonstrates that the process of social transformation can be slow, but changes can happen anytime and anywhere. It examines how the collapse of power structures shift social dynamics, and how this inevitable collapse influences our daily existence and creates new beginning.
