About:

Ginny's work critically engages with architecture and spatial experiences that allow the audience to negotiate between their own senses of belonging, identity, and collective memory. Exploring the interactions and relationships between one's sense of space and place, enabling spaces that are personal and personalized to each individual, subverting the existing preconditioned spaces of inhabitation. Autobiograph­ical ethnographic material, coupled with theoretical research and exploration on collectivity is a common thread in her projects. These research topics are derived from her ongoing experience of migration from Hong Kong to London, during her time at the RCA. Hence, as an extension to her dissertation "Rebuilding the home and self-identity, displaced in the 21st Century." Now at Masters with ADS 0, her project "Embroidering Belonging, Homing the Borrowed Space." Looks at facilitating these moments, offering ways of engagement for the diasporic community to renegotiate with their new places of belonging.

This project looks into how individuals re-engage with their new places of living and establish a sense of belonging and place, from a migrant’s perspective, in the 21st Century. Investigating how Hong Kong people in London are coming together as a diaspora to adapt, create and combine their new Hong Kong, their own "alternative living rooms"- their homing practices. Through the embroidering of flexible, portable, and scalable structures, it allows the community to appropriate the preconditioned spaces, enabling an ongoing engagement with enclosures and space. Looking between the freedom and limitations of adapting in the domestic and the city, for new non-hierarchical spaces of collectivity to be created. This project aims to construct or rather embroider, scalable and portable spaces of both my introspective world, and the diasporic community’s, collective mobile spaces of security. Enabling portable living rooms that are temporary and migratory, but through their architecture creates spaces between the domestic and the city for a sense of ownership, cohesion, togetherness and belonging, forming their homing practice. Of Places to dwell, for the re-creation of the memories of daily life. Creating umweltens, where gatherings, debating, playing, living, rituals, ceremonies, and more can occur. Rebuilding new senses of belonging, whilst allowing them to leave imprints of inhabitation and life onto the city of London. Alternative living rooms. Embroidering belonging.
