Tracy Ma
88.9 × 58.5 cm

A series of three tapestries composed of images of stationery, food, and medicine from Hong Kong, the quotidian objects that the artist recalls during her childhood there.

This project explores the relationship between possessions and the narratives attached to them, as well as the fetishization of ordinary objects as souvenirs or keepsakes linked to meaningful places and times.
