兔兒神回來 (Return of The Rabbit God), 2021
photography series

Inspired by a queer 18th century Qing Dynasty folktale by scholar and poet 袁枚 (Yuan Mei), 兔兒神回來 (Return of The Rabbit God), is born from navigating identity as a queer Chinese settler of the diaspora. How do you negotiate yourself being in both a cultural space that celebrates your heritage but condemns your queer identity, and a Western space that accepts your queerness but orientalises your cultural identity? Through world building and fashion photography, this work explores these intersections and claims them in full glory - it narrates a contemporary Rabbit God, an androgynous fashion deity who reimagines a new Asian diasporic futurity for bodies navigating the tension between these two spaces.
