Bibi Chew's "What if…….."

17 May 2017 to 17 Jul 2017

Bibi Chew in collaboration with "Barehands: Vol. 1. Asian Artists Residency Project" moved by ideas of cultural identity, Bibi Chew takes on challenging issues of race, environment and gender, creating commentary through familiar objects. 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.
