In this iteration of Thunderclap, the show was set up as part-shop, part-sewing workshop and part-exhibition. Thunderclap employs steganography to publicly redistribute the erased work of Chinese anarcho-feminist He-Yin Zhen (1886–1920) through the medium of clothing accessories.
A collaborative project together with my mother, Maria Ling Huang. Using the clothes abandoned by the customers of my mothers dry cleaning and alteration shop, we repurposed them into backpacks.
A talk and short workshop on mending ruptures.
A talk and short workshop on mending as a practice of interdependency.
The exhibition Hutong Whispers is a steganographic catalogue of steganographic publishing projects camouflaged as a laundry line.
‘Thunderclap’ is a steganographic zine, that piggybacks on fashion accessories to publicly distribute the suppressed writings of Chinese anarcho-feminist, He-Yin Zhen (1886-1920).
Thunderclap taking the cover of a blanket, literally speaking, but also figuratively as an unsuspecting agent that can smuggle and ‘air out’ private information into the public space.
The Freedom Collections was performed at Festival de Wereld van het Witte de Withkwartier. Petr Kazil who was in the audience described it as "a nice combination of a group-problem-solving-session, slapstick, street-act, fashion-show and art-performance".
Ongoing project officially since 2013 and unofficially since 2010. Holy Crapparel is for re-used material, DIY practices and the makeshift. I also designed the website in a way that shows the relationship between 3 important steps of how my practice: finished work shows what I did, process shows how I developed the project and references shows what I was inspired by. Darija Medic did a wonderful job building and realising site.
