Under the Yuzu Tree
Under the Yuzu Tree is an on-going project, I am working with mixed media, such as our family archive, photographs, paper ephemerals, texts, letters and video installation. I am seeking traces of uncertain identity of my own family history. The investigation takes place through the fuzzy memories of family members oral stories. Through investigating family photographs, letter and other material, I am trying to put the fragmental pieces together into some kind of entity. By mixing up different material, I am testing the blurry distinction between documentation and fiction. I am in particular looking into how the narrative is altered from memory through images and how the ambiguous nature contained within the everyday. Within the liminal space between time, space and history, I am interested in the interplay between autobiography and imagination.
