Artist Statement:
My practice explores the composite territory of child and adult in the context of kawaii culture (the culture of cuteness prevalent in East Asia) and psychoanalysis. I am especially invested in certain theories of Klein, Lacan and Kristeva; they facilitate my investigations into the ambivalent nature of issues such as infantilisation, fetish, and domesticity, and their impact on the individual or collective mind.
