The artist collected used clothes and fabric from Japan, Australia, France and Spain, used them herself, cut them into pieces and re-pieced them together to form the image of a wedding dress and converted it into a print. Every piece of fabric is encased with memories from different individuals, times and places. However, like marriage as represented by the wedding dress, they are united as one in this work. The artist was born in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and moved to Paris at a young age. She is currently based in Australia and Cambodia.
