Video and photos documented by Laichee Yang

A week long performance in the Politics of Weeds exhibition, exploring how to belong to a community of weeds as an Asian American Hmong female. I intentionally place my body [clothed in underwear] in the gallery space to push the boundaries between the spectator and the spectated.

Politics of Weeds is an experiential exhibition that sparks conversations and shares ways of knowing that center community and cultural relationships with plants that question the politics of the weeds. Artists and scholars Bo Zheng (City University of Hong Kong) and Diane Willow (University of Minnesota) are collaborating to present this month-long experiential exhibition at the University of Minnesota
