An Installation with Performance Art
Technology may have connected us globally, but the more it advances the more it has a tendency to keep us physically and mentally apart. Thus the impact of physical touch becomes more powerful and meaningful. I grew up in the modern city of Hong Kong where it was hard to find peace of mind, as a result my life is full of stresses. Through the power of touch I would like to demonstrate the special bond I share with my mother, In my most stressful of times, I find that a simple hug from my mum puts me in a tranquil state where all other noise that is prevalent in the city is muted, thoughts of peace return to me. This maternal relationship that develops since birth, a mother’s warm embrace transcends the stress of everyday life and is bound by blood. Through this work and performance I hope to express the power of a body’s touch- Hugs!

She also a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in the United Kingdom in 2011 and obtained a Bachelor Degree of Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University in 2013. Because she grew up in Hong Kong, one of world’s financial centers with a special political background, her artwork expresses the abstract relationships of the modern city and herself. She hopes to communicate her situations and experiences from her life, through her watercolour painting, ceramic and performance art, and hopes to uncover the subconscious meanings that can be forgotten or ignored by the people who live there.
