Julia Chiang: Salt on Our Skin


The calm in my day, when I was a child and busy making, is a sensation I still hold onto.

I’m always interested in our bodies as vessels, what we contain and what we cannot. All that comes out of us, all that is within us. The borders both real and imagined. Existing in the in-between. Not American enough not Chinese enough, not enough enough.


I imagine the millions of tiny bits that make up our bodies and everything around us. I sit with images of plant life, animals, anatomy. How we merge and push against one another, how new forms emerge and how we transform. One bit, one move, slow by slow, marking time and space.
