Yau Ching

The work of Hong Kong-born artist Yau Ching strategically pulls apart the conventional relationship between spectator and text. Inverting the roles of "tourist" and "native," she interrogates the politics of representation in relation to questions of gender, exile, and cultural translation. Difference emerges as a core theme, invoked and challenged by the incongruities of public and private memories.   full biography
