Everything exists in continuity.

Before After 以前丶以後 is part visual memoir, part investigation of our connections to place through gestures. Through the process of collecting, learning and re-performing gestures, new meanings are added through adaptation. Like dreams of the past living through veins and imaginations, what was inherited, what was left, was muscle memories and a cluster of dislocated hopes never to be fulfilled. This is an attempt to portray the remembering of a migrated history. The solo exhibition was held at Roslyn Smorgon Gallery, Footscray Community Arts Centre in 2018.
