Abstract
The adjective "perennial" suggests something enduring or perpetually renewing. The spirit of the perennial can be found in many traditional Chinese families. Despite illnesses, hardships and separations, being perennial means that one will always find the means to re-root and persevere. Perennial (2020) arrives in two parts. The frontal part interlaces spoken memories of the artist's grandmother with gestures of returning home captured in Super 8 and 35mm stills and processed digitally. The back of the work weaves together a fictitious narrative using writings found or made on the backs of the photographs, providing the work with an alternative ending.
