The focal point of the ‘WUFU (賟蝠)’ installation is a series of portraits of people of Chinese origin, which are used to make an installation using found doors and partitions from destroyed neighbourhoods and suburbs where immigrants have lived.

It is a journey through research about intellectual history, the remorse found within the stereotype, migration and how the world views the place and effects of the process of ‘orientalising’, of its subjects.

Exhibited during the group-exhibition Ancestral Blues at FramerFramed  in Amsterdam. “The colour blue and its transcendental connotations and associations, combined with the personal and cultural-historical backgrounds of the individual artists, form the point of departure for the exhibition Ancestral Blues. The exhibition centers on exchange, transformation and migration, but also incorporates the concepts of networks, connections, W.E.B. Dubois’ double consciousness, Paul Gilroys Black Atlantic, Tricksters, Afro-Futurism and Créolité – all within the Amsterdam context.”
