ARTIST STATEMENT: I have been working with the idea of ping pong for some time, thinking about the game play of the sport as an analogy for the Asian American narrative of traversing between two cultures. I consider the impact of growing up with conflicting values and traditions and reflect on how the constant shifting in emotions and deliberations that come with hybrid identities can be comparable to the swift rallying nature of ping pong. At the same time, I have also been working with the visual motif of a woman squatting. I aim to express a sense of loss and awkwardness in her portrayal, while working with contextual elements to indicate solidarity and resilience. Overall, my work has followed a general exploration of cultural identity, sentimentality, and sense of belonging through deeper research and reflection on the shortcomings of language, whether in the intent of expression, translation, or the barriers that arise due to the passing of time.
