Jess Young is a hapa interdisciplinary artist working with ceramics, textiles, printmaking, photography, and archival research to create a contemporary dialogue about the complexity of identity. Her practice explores the ways we can disrupt binary systems through the interpersonal knowledge that generational memory and personal identity are inherently political.
By combining craft and research to create a solidified representation of mixed identity. To rewrite a history with a nuanced representation. For healing. For myself. For those who are underrepresented or find themselves in-between communities.
