ABOUT

b. 1988 Norwegian-Singaporean artist based in Oslo.

How do I, the European offspring of a Chinese Diaspora, create a vision of a culture I only possess fragmentary knowledge of? How can I tell my ancestors’ stories when they have become cultural Others to me, in which I replace gaps in my cultural understanding with stereotypes?
