10 Daughters by Jereh Leung
“You have to help me do chores because I have no daughter,” says the artist’s mother, the ninth of ten daughters. An interdisciplinary presentation weaving installation, sound, lighting and live performance, 10 Daughters is a journey of liberation, care and self-actualisation vis-à-vis the context of domestic space.
10 Daughters temporarily transforms the site of a former church and an all-girls school into a vessel holding generations of stories passed down to the artist. Contemplative yet playful, the work brings together personal narratives, fiction and impressions from the artist’s memories of growing up in the 80s and 90s. Come encounter the artist over two days from morning to night; to recollect, repose and revel in a shared space.
