My entry - Eurasian in Singapore #2, is a photograph that I took whilst on residency in Singapore in 2018. Below is my statement with the work.
‘Where are you from?’
‘No, where are you really from?’
As a female Eurasian Australian of Chinese Italian Australian cultural heritage, these are common questions that I encounter in my daily life and across the globe. For a decade I have created artistic investigations that explore cultural identity and belonging in today’s ever-shifting socio-political landscape.
Eurasian in Singapore #2 is a self-portrait that places me within Tiong Bahru Market, one of Singapore’s iconic post WWII housing estate areas where my great grandmother lived. Singapore is a place I feel ‘at home’ within, its culture resonates with me and feels familiar, yet my Eurasian identity sees me in-between cultures, a liminal space. I am perpetually ‘other’ within my surrounds, visually and metaphorically.
