Opening Apr 22 Amy Ching-Yan Lam with Haeahn Woo Kwon: A Small but Comfy House and Maybe a Dog. The title of this exhibition comes from a text, “Me in the Future,” that Amy Ching-Yan Lam wrote at age 11 and put in a time capsule, speculating by the age of 25 she’d be married, have a career, and “a small but comfy house and maybe a dog.” Starting from these childhood fantasies of domestic love and financial stability, Lam presents artworks that explore how these dreams function within the wider context of colonial history. With humour and acuity, she examines the relationships between property, family, institutional power and collections, and theft.
