Sherry Chunqing Liu, “Where have I arrived?”

Prompted by a personal polaroid of the curator of her childhood home in Xiamen, China, this thesis exhibition explores the themes of food/kitchen, translation, and body through the lens of “diaspora space”, defined by sociologist Avtar Brah as a conceptual category that “includes the entanglement, the intertwining of the genealogies of dispersion with those of ‘staying put’”. The project explores the relation between arriving in a gallery space and in diaspora space, and opens up the complexity of the idea of “Asian Diaspora.”
