artist statement

For me, my works are not the representation of physically disabled, because representation takes the power of someone and empower the individual as an authority or authentic voice to represent someone. My interest in this subject comes out of my own physical disability and my observations on disability in general. I can't claim or present myself as an observer, but I make myself as a subject, whose disability is shaping its subjectivity.

"I may be different, but not disabled"
