This series of new work directs our gaze towards arduous and life-threatening journeys that millions of immigrants undertake in search of a better home, often holding an image of a paradise that does not exist.
Mee Jey derives heavily from her biographical and ecological events, exploring the political, social, and philosophical understanding of ‘self’ and ‘others’ in the given socio-political scenario. Mee Jey is an artist who prefers to use repurposed materials. “When you have less resources, you become more resourceful,” she states. Growing up in a large family where resources were slim, she learnt innovative use of material as a way of living. Her work is active and breathing, constantly changing, and growing. Her approach incorporates multiple disciplines that range from drawings to paintings, sculptural installations, text, and time-based media including performances.
