Heather Keung, Bending Over Backwards, 2008.

Resisting romanticism while simultaneously acting out fantasies, this peculiar and provocative selection of mixed-media performance videos includes some of the most memorable Asian female artists I’ve encountered: Alison S.M. Kobayashi (Canada), Jin-Me Yoon (South Korea/Canada), Laurel Nakadate (USA), C. Snatch Z. (Japan), Patty Chang (USA), Serena Lee and Lesley Loksi Chan (Canada). Whether it is through playful childlike engagement or in-your-face burlesque action, these artists distinctly confuse and confront the contemporary creation and appropriation of marginalized race, gender and sexual identities through the visibility, vulnerability and vigor of their bodies. -Heather Keung
