YG Son


        Having lived in Korea, Singapore and Australia, Ellen Yeong Gyeong Son is interested in exploring transcultural identities, memories, and cultural limitations. She utilises cellophane, act of scratching and drawing to metaphorically inscribe, layer and erase diverse cultural memories and experiences that one may possess.

        Ellen YG Son is collaborating with Jacinta Keefe for Hyphenated Biennial.

      Untitled Home is a collaborative project by Keefe and Son in sharing the colonised histories of our homes and discussing their meanings and experiences of living in their current home, Australia. Through oral and photographic evidence of family history, artists retrace the history of their family homes (Condobolin - NSW, and Busan) before and after the colonisation. Keefe, as a Wiradjuri woman, and Son, as an immigrant, hope to interweave their memories and stories of their current ‘home’ in Australia.
