ling-wen tsai performance

In-between, shredded English and Chinese newspaper, projected images, music by Kevin Volans, 2000
When an individual's linguistic and sociological environment is radically altered, a different set of values, expectations, and logic emerges. One's sense of the norm and the absolute are challenged. I have often felt foreign in both western and eastern society. This performance is derived from a sense of in-between-ness in my life. The migratory and transient nature of my existence has influenced my way of living, thinking, and working.
