Artist Statement

Born in America and raised by Chinese immigrants, I live in a permanent in-between state. My practice, which focuses on the spaces between identities, examines suspension or displacement through sculpture, film, and performance. In my installation, The Impossibility of Home, viewers drift through a grove of artificial, painted banana trees, navigating between opposing projections. Together, these components create a sense of alienation in a non-place, questioning where avenues join and diverge, pursuing paths that are far from direct.
