Home (Documentary Photobook)
The documentary project Home is an exhibition and photobook that reflects upon an immigration journey referencing the 24 Chinese solar terms in the traditional East Asian lunisolar calendar. Organized into 24 chapters and using the 24 solar terms as a throughline, the book tracks key moments in the artist’s family through short stories.
As a homesick child, the artist didn’t understand her parent’s choices for emigrating to Canada. In Home she has visited or recreated all the places and important moments in her journey as a first generation immigrant growing up and living in Canada for the last 18 years. The process of looking for home has helped her in finding her identity and given her a sense of belonging in her adopted country.
