Carmen C. Wong

Conseptual performance artist, researcher

June-July

Studio +358 19501162

GSM: +44 (0) 7754966358

E-mail:  cwong (at) alumni.nd.edu

What are some of the practices of home-making and creating belonging? Wong's work at Loviisa Residency will explore the uneasy intersection of nativity and nomadism using the material languages and sensory experience of the kitchen, and her own embodied experience of residing in the residency space. The research is a response to how the practice of building a home is constant, physical, everyday, and choreographed, and closely aligned with identity-construction and future-making.

     The central and familiar domestic space of the kitchen becomes a metaphor for the homes, cultures and national identities we inhabit and the systems and orders that govern these beliefs of how to be in place and in sync. How might Loviisa residents participate, intervene, welcome, disrupt/interrupt or make more comfortable Wong's existence in this space and time? At the open studio, Wong will invite ideas for the various ways the public may be able to communicate these interventions, and also share their thoughts and objects on how a space becomes a home. 

Open Studio on Thuesday 7.6 at 18:00
