My project on young Chinese in Norway
Many people have a vision of what a Chinese person is, but that person is hardly what most Chinese identify with. Through my project I wish to show Norwegian people that Chinese are not at all a homogeneous group, but rather as diverse as any other group or nationality. I want to visually combine Norwegian and Chinese influences in my work, in a way that also embodies a strong reference to traditional Chinese art. To do this I want to use two photographs per person participating in my project – one portrait and one still life; the still life further explaining or exploring each participant.
