Chun Hua Catherine Dong: Visual Poetic of Embodied Shame

“Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame is a multimedia installation and participatory performance exhibition by Montreal based artist, Chun Hua Catherine Dong. Dong’s practice navigates the diaspora by challenging notions of gender and identity embedded in traditional Chinese culture. Through a feminist dialogue employing the body, Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame examines patriarchal values embedded in Chinese culture employing East-Asian shame culture as a lens. Dong’s cultivation of issues related to Chinese culture expands discourse on how contemporary Chinese women are perceived and treated within Chinese and Western socio-political spheres. Through presenting and re-enacting the seminal life experiences in the works presented, Dong is able work through them, empowering herself and contributing to the growing empowerment of contemporary Chinese women.”
