"Not everything will pass" a scroll of Scans of braids made from waste hair I collected in Anhui province. Currently on view at the Ding Shun Museum, Ningde, Fujian, China. Every braid consists of hair from numerous unknown owners. So many stories entwined, so many voices unknown. These braids are Archives of many lives. Stories are bonds of coming and going. #bond#story#archive#lives#hair#braid#research#journey#china#exhibition#museum#fujian#art#artist#femaleartist

"Braids" currently on view at the Ding Shun Museum, Ningde, China. Ceramic braids. Bodies made of clay, hair weaves the body. Sometimes a goddess would spit onto the earth and form from the mud a being, a body with hands, feet, mouth and hunger. A being created by a bond between the spit of the goddess and earth. A being that will consist of stories, of bonds of coming and going. A braid. Braids are bonds of coming and going. Thoughts I am having whilst thinking of the Gilgamesh Epos, that I now faintly remember as its so long ago that I read it. Furthermore This makes me think of the body as a mythological event. #braids#bonds#story#hair#clay#gods#goddess#ceramic#spit#earth#gilgamesh#mesopotamia#art#artist and yes i spat into the clay.

The witnesses Currently on view at the Ding Shun Museum, Ningde, Fujian, China. They recorded the process. They seen it all and inscribed the information on their fabric. Archives. Textiles are archives.and anyone who knows my work knows i always have a dress or some kind of textile acting as an archive of my process. #textile#archive#story#witness#hair#braid#inscription#word#memory#trace#dress#voice#museum#show#art#artist#china

Slow dance on view at the Ding Shung Museum, Ningde, China (part of Teda Museum, Tianjin, China). Dancing with memory, an old skin and old dress full of inscriptions. Perceiving it as a scab of fate.

Currently on view at the Ding Shun Museum, Ningde, Fujian, China. Ceramics I made based on "Hair receivers" that women at the beg. Of the 20th Century used to place their waste hair into. I see the hair as going into Tehom. Tehom, literally the Deep or Abyss, refers to the Great Deep of the primordial waters of creation in the Bible. #ceramics#hairreceivers#body#wastehair#hair#woman#archive#abyss#waters#primoridal#creation#story#tehom#art#artist#exhibition#museum#china#fujian#ningde#femaleartist
