Jill Kuanfung

Jill Kuanfung is a twenty-five-year-old, mixed-race artist living in Chicago. Her work deals with the recovery of missing artifacts from mixed histories, especially within the context of family and ancestry, as well as with the emptiness left within the self as a result of cultural "erasure" and silence. Her recent work has begun to focus on themes of translation and communication gaps in interracial relationships, and the concept of "belonging" to multiple worlds at once.
