Itinerant Assembly

Itinerant Assembly 


What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?

Where do we find the local when we are constantly on the move?

Who forms our community when we exist inside a global network? 

And what does it mean to be an artist in today's digital and nomadic world?


Itinerant Assembly interrogates these questions through a five-month programme of events which initiate collaborations of people in real and virtual space. This project is informed by an understanding that in global cities today, nomadic modes of living and working, whether forced or desired, are ubiquitous.

  • Central to my practice is an exploration of a multi-disciplinary approach in knowledge production and expanded understanding of the curatorial. Through my projects I am interested in enabling innovative and critical thinking about contemporary issues. Previously trained in Fine Art and Design with a focus in moving image and video installations, I am especially drawn to working with digital forms and concepts related to the experience of time. 

    Framed against the backdrop of contemporary nomadism and hyper-mobility, my graduate project 'Itinerant Assembly' interrogates the productive potential of temporary togetherness and ideas around precariousness through a five-month programme of events at Gasworks. 

    My dissertation ‘Upholding Autonomy and Criticality in Artist-run Spaces: Things that can happen and C&G Artpartment as Case Studies’ looks at how artist-run spaces in Hong Kong demonstrate their sense of autonomy and explore roles in upholding criticality, focusing on methodologies that extend beyond artworks and exhibitions making such as governance, funding strategies and the use of language.
