Nominated by SAIC 

Through creating half-documentary, half-fictional narratives of my intimate relationship and its impact on my family, I reenact my life as an Asian woman in the Western world. This reflects upon the West’s categorization of femininity, sexuality and selfhood. My photography and video works address the unresolved tensions underlying the existing categories combined with my experience of vulnerability, joy and confusion.
