SUSAN

Porcelain

2016

Metaphorizing domestic workers as cleaning bottles, they are widely used in our daily lives, yet disposable. There are many domestic helpers in Hong Kong has been mistreated and disrespected, while there are many who treats their domestic helper as friends or even family member.

By molding the form or domestic cleaning bottles, the work Susan depicted sweet memories between a foreign domestic helper named Susan with her employer's daughter. Transforming the material from plastic to porcelain, Joyce transform the relationship between employer and employee from disposable to something permanent, and the same time fragile and requires a lot of care.
