Bibi Chew in collaboration with "Barehands: Vol. 1.

She has used and transformed leaf-wrapped bundles, eggs, glass bottles, sand, wooden boards, butterfly catchers and coffee strainers into metaphors for marginalisation, destruction and containment. She has carved stitched and layered pieces into a united form. Her work speaks of a delicately controlled self with underlying hidden meanings.
