Hands are the physical tool of transmission and the part we use to touch the world around. This publication studies the way we look at them, the way we identify them and relate, compare or project onto them. Indeed they are that with which we give, take and exchange. In other words, they are the physical embodiment of passage, of forwarding and inheritance.
Under “No Name Girl”, artist and curator Amandine Vabre Chau explores heritage, culture, migration and memory through photography and zine-making. Also operating under the name “KWONG”, she cross-examines these identity structures as a way to create new pathways of understanding. She’s interested in broadening experiences of collaboration, care and community building. She translates the need to celebrate one’s history through an introspective examination of the “self” : What does it mean to be both a descendent, and therefore a receiver of knowledge, and an active participant in one’s story ? As identity is moving, shifting, she aspires to delve into inconsistency and instability by presenting her work as open-questions instead of answers.
