“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.
I am pleased to announce that I will be performing a new durations piece, ” The Warrior ” at Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery, in San Luis Obispo, California, as part of at Inverse Performance Art Festival 1:00pm – 3:30pm, September 29, 2017
“The Warrior” is a durational performance that explores how to use self-care, a new feminist strategy of resistance, to transform violent conflicts. Recent feminist discourse discusses to the potential power and radical nature of embracing self-care to explore our vulnerabilities because if “I matter, we matter, we are transforming what matters.” In this performance, I employ the similar strategy to create a liminal being by subverting my body to a site of contradiction and satire. The war is not inevitable. Conflicts can be diffused and transformed; arms can be laid down for good. Peace may often be elusive, but it is within our grasp which is both a gift and a task. For me, what the most important thing in this performance is to create some positive and sustainable gestures/actions that have capabilities to transform violence without depicting violence itself. Through satirizing the role of armed-force and juxtaposing the meditative gestures, this performance not only reveals a powerful sense of self and openness, but also turns the battle ground to a harmonious meditation space that cherishes human dignity, peace with justice, and shared well-being.
I am pleased to announce that Red, Green, Blue ≠ White includes my two works that were exhibited at Blackwood Gallery in 2013.
Red, Green, Blue ≠ White is the catalog produced for the 2013 exhibition at the Blackwood of the same name. Curated by Johnson Ngo, then-Curator-in-Residence at the Blackwood Gallery, the exhibition brought together eight artists exploring the the intersections of colour theory and contemporary race and identity politics. Included in this publication are commissioned essays and artist projects that depart from that 2013 exhibition, reflecting on notions of performativity, hybridity, and intersectionality.

Language is a universal and abstract system of sounds and symbols. Yet, the social, political and cultural contexts in which a language is spoken greatly affects its development and usages. In ever increasingly globalized societies, our sociolinguistic identity is not often singular. The language we speak at home, or learned as a child – our mother tongue – may not be the same one used in our everyday lives. Mother Tongueinvites us to consider the complex relationships that exist between language and identity; how it defines who we are and how it can inform visual artistic practice.
