855 Kilograms of Homes in Another State
The drawings on these four bales of cardboard waste’s surfaces were made during the cardboard waste’s previous incarnation as ‘weekend houses’ of different groups of Overseas Filipino Workers – most of them transnational mothers – in Central, Hong Kong.
Production of the initial work was supported by Australia Council for the Arts – New Work grant. The presentation of this excerpted work is produced during my postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Gothenburg’s Centre on Global Migration, Sweden with the support of Milani Gallery, Brisbane, Australia and RMIT Gallery, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.
