About the event

As a Malaysian-born Chinese living in a foreign land, my studio practice is rooted in exploring

culture and identity issues. I am overly self-conscious, questioning my "self" and who surrounds

me. It is a complex presentation issue, either norm or 'otherness' in any aspect of life.

Due to this fundamental objective, the outcome of most of my work is the least important

compared to the "process of creating." Each stroke of ink, or paint, is not merely a mark; it

layered a collective of information and meaning of the identities.

The work, titled "End," is concerned with transforming synthetic materials into ethereal aesthetic

experiences through various media- installation, drawing, and sculpture. The ordinary materials

used in the structure are school-grade glue, water, chicken wire, yarn, red sand, and ink.

Furthermore, it opens a dialogue between drawing, sculpture, and installation aspects.
