Star Crossed, Shanghai World's Fair, 2010
This is my largest and most important commission/collaboration with Jennifer Tee to date. I collaborated with her on the textile component of a large scale installation, incorporating sculpture, and performance for the Shanghai 2010 Expo. The work, named Star crossed (referencing the famous jazz piece by Duke Ellington) was part of Nether Land, the Dutch Cultural Center’s official entry representing the Netherlands. Held from June 20th until July 21st, the exhibition was seen by thousands of Chinese and foreign visitors.
