I am honored to present my new work Silkworm at Larnaca Biennale (Oct 11 - Nov 24, 2023) in Larnaca, Cyprus. I believe silkworm will be series of my different investigations relating to reproductive labor, trade and silk, gender, molting, war, and more. This first work will focus on my great grandmother's and my new language. I had looked for cocoon outside, wearable outside, but, for this work, I am starting to assume that it is inside. Then, the layers, which are legs and arms, face and skin, seem to be free and the moth can fly freely with a nurturing cocoon inside body.
I was invited to the September 2023 issue of Critique in the Front Line by IATC Hong Kong with my essay Body in Costume. I have been interested in the relationship between costumes/clothing and performing body especially in relation to hidden parts and revealing parts.
