HKBU Heritage : Student Production : Self-control


Chan, Yuen Kiu

Hair, Xuan paper, Wood


I used to repeatedly draw horizontal lines to calm myself down when I felt upset. The process creates natural undulations and controls my emotions. My emotions annoy me and lead to excessive hair loss. I tried to incorporate the hair in my work so it became a cycle of my emotional meditation. Tying hair into knots records my self-healing moments; every piece of hair must be strung together to present a complete surface. The process has irreplaceable meaning to me.
