Born in Hong Kong in the late eighties, Joyce C. Wong immigrated to the States in 1990. As a young child, she was thought to be mute until she started speaking a jargon of Cantonese, Mandarin, and English all at once, and so, she does not feel she has a first language. Wong considers herself a global citizen and conceptualizes her art in a world without borders. She aims to create work that incorporates pseudoscience and fictional realities while engaging degrees of social context. Her art borders on absurdity and relies heavily on the nature of loving, the building of trust, and the intricacies of interpersonal relationships. Her current projects include documenting her journey in beating the Missouri State Women’s Powerlifting records, investigating the stereotypes and scientific theories between size and strength, and continuing her palm reading practice.
She currently resides in Columbia, Missouri.
