This ephemeral installation was shot on location in an abandoned school in the Leow Ancestral Village in Meizhou, China.
My maternal grandmother, a
schoolteacher in the 1920’s, used this room as an office and resting place.
Using bags of glossy ganoderma as an adapted ceremonial bed, this organic installation
recalls the imagined memories of ancestral history and heritage.
