From 2016-2017, she was a researcher at Huangbian Station Contemporary Art Research Center, and she is currently a member of NZTT Sewing Co-op*, as well as a gupo (comb sister) of gupouk (comb sister house). Speaking through her keen and delicate observations as well as forms of trauma, she nurtures material objects of interest as a form of soil from which to grow images and text with a variety of media. Her recent work focuses upon a disappearing network of early 20th century migrant women from the Pearl River Delta. The memories and routes of these ‘Comb Sisters’ who journeyed to Southeast Asia are supplemented with her own experiences as an inquiry into the relationships between individuals and the land.
