She set up the Asian Artists’ Book Library at Tai Kwun Contemporary and is part of the curatorial team at the annual BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair. Her curatorial interests lie in how artists develop new languages and symbols in times of political change, and how to manoeuvre in the liminal space between fact and fiction—using magic realism, sarcasm, humour, and myth-making.
