"Remember Me (close-up)", sound, installation, ceramic, porcelain, 2014

This installation brings into question the results of personal confrontation with the commodification of the human body (trafficking). The work presents the viewer with a crate of intricately crafted ceramic and porcelain bones, which emanates the sounds of children’s laughter and voices from deep inside. The children are speaking in Tagalog and Isan, both dialects from countries the artist grew up in to personify the bones. It evolved from the previous bones series on ink.
