Makeda Duong
In her practice Makeda Duong attempts to unravel and represent aspects of her lived experience in relation to themes such as race, gender, sexuality, and mental health. 'Mixed Race Female' is an exploration of her Vietnamese/Australian heritage, coupled with artworks delving into the theme of mental illness. The experience of the mixed race person living in Australia touches on issues of hybridity, cultural identity, diaspora and feelings of not belonging, of being neither here nor there. Stemming from a recent diagnosis, a body of work depicting struggles with mental health is also present.
