Where Comes Mulan: Exploring the Complexities of Identity, Gender, and Culture in China

Welcome to the crowdfunding campaign for "Where Comes Mulan," a research-based art project that aims to delve into the intricate intersections of identity, gender, mythology and tourism in China. Inspired by Mulan's empowering story, this project seeks to unravel the complexities and nuances of her character and her impact on society. We invite you to join us on this journey of self-discovery and reflection by supporting this campaign.

As an artist born in Wuhan and raised in different places, I am deeply passionate about exploring the multifaceted nature of identity and gender in our rapidly changing world. Through a series of mixed-media installations, including photographs, videos, and community outreach programs, I will create an immersive and site-specific experience that invites visitors to reflect on the diverse perspectives and contradictions surrounding these issues.

I am thrilled to share that I have been granted an artist residency at K11 Artist Village in Wuhan, the city where Mulan Township locates. I will explore the ways in which the surrounding towns have been shaped by the mythology of Mulan. Using a mix of documentary and fantasy, allow me to connect with the cultural roots of this iconic figure in new and profound ways. More importantly, I will dive into her story of bravery, determination, and self-discovery has become a symbol of empowerment for many, especially for those who identify as female or gender non-conforming.


With your generous support, we can cover the costs of materials, travel, and equipment necessary to bring this project to life. Your contributions will also help me engage with local communities in China in a meaningful and respectful manner, promoting dialogue and understanding.

By supporting this campaign, you join a community of individuals who believe in the transformative power of art. Your contribution, regardless of its size, will make a difference in empowering Mulan and her legacy.
