ARTIST STATEMENT: The Arts to me are a public arena where I can have dialogue with social discourses. There is a film called The Hunt by Christian Jankowski where the artist goes hunting for food in the urban jungle, equipped with a bow and arrow in a supermarket. He stalks his prey, a chicken in an open freezer, and shoots it with a huge arrow. After Jankowski hunts down the rest of his shopping, an imperturbable cashier scans the loot. The absurd situation cleverly highlights this disconnect between the source of our food and its consumption that I am interested in. Food has always been a topic I am most interested in my personal life. It is the main attraction, which everyone lives revolves around when and what is their next meal. There’s certain memories that is triggered when eating certain food. I hope to bring about this reflection upon our relationship with our food by creating narratives that tell stories about our foodways. My twin affection for food and art-making will find a way to bridge these two into an enjoyable visual experience. There's an aspect of imaginative and nightmare in my work, which is what I think is a reflection of my personal conflicted love/hate relationship with food. Instead of art for consumption, I aim to produce art for food for thought and allow for healthy dialogue.
