Installation, Stone Lithography. 2019.
“When my mother was 18, my grandfather took the car and left the family. He didn’t return to their lives for about 20 years. My grandmother, having moved from Hong Kong to Canada to be with my grandfather, experienced culture and class shock. I learned early on that she wasn’t the kindest figure to my mother and her siblings. Growing up, visiting my extended family was stressful from the car ride to the event; going to Toronto made me feel nauseous because of the associations to my family. It was only recently with the passing of my grandmother in 2017 that I began to comprehend the neverending state of tension in my maternal family.”
