“It is a recreation of a movie scene (from Chicken Run) with chickens I got from a Chinatown restaurant that I regularly visited when I was in college.”
paperbridgeee is a Vancouver-born, Hong Kong–raised, previously Chicago/New York-based multi-media artist and professional dilettante who organizes events ranging from performative tea parties to book shop order deliveries. She often takes daily life as subject matter while commenting on the effects of global cultural interaction through transnational narrative. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, her work references her childhood growing up in Hong Kong, a city where East meets West. Her work also focuses on the inability of communication, which is used to visualize reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content, and the dysfunctions of language. More recently, she is a part of Display Distribute — a thematic inquiry, distribution service, now and again exhibition space and sometimes shop founded in Kowloon, 2013.
