I will be exhibitiing work in progress from my latest project, Hong Kong Future Diaspora in a solo show at Bloc Projects, with a special opening performance at the launch event on Thurs 20th Oct 6-8pm.

Hong Kong Future Diaspora is the second cycle of my wider project, Performing Identities that explores what it means to be East and Southeast Asian (ESEA) in the UK today. ⁠Through performance, discussions and an exhibition of past and current documentation of the larger Performing Identities project, the exhibition programme sketches the shifting landscapes of the wandering Hong Konger through past, present and future.

Hong Kong Future Diaspora will continue next year, culminating with an exhibition at Bloc Projects in September 2023 featuring a live performance on the streets of Sheffield and a new moving image work.

Collaborators to date include artists, researchers, martial arts scholars and fellow makers:
Clara Cheung
Jan-Ming Lee
Dr Wayne Wong
Angela YT Chan
Anna Chan
Franco Ho
Jonathan Tang
Shan Ray Cheung
Sunshine Wong
