Statement

My works in performance involves hands as the main expression. The reason why I interest the hands in my art is “When I was little, my mother told me that I have hands longer than everyone else. Like those of an artist. From then I kept telling myself that I would be an artist when I grew up. I tend to look at my hands as they move, especially when I make art and perform with them.
