From the Department of Social Custom (1997)

These works are life sized ceramic cheong sam, a type of traditional Chinese dress, made from earthenware ceramics. The dresses being made in an unwearable material, came to represent my own feelings of dislocation towards my upbringing in Australia and being of Chinese heritage. This work was exhibited in the Rewedged exhibition, Global Gallery, Paddington (1997), the Millennium Hotel, Kings Cross, Sydney (1998) and was featured on the cover of Dr Hazel Clark's publication on Chinese Dress (1998)
