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.
