Yellow on the outside white on the inside, the word ‘banana’ holds a second as derogatory meaning towards Asians living in foreign countries. It has become a symbol that highlights the notion of otherness and oversimplifies the complex nature of dual identity. The exhibition aims to peel away the cultural assumptions of being a ‘banana’ through recreating private lives in public, authentically. 
This site-specific installation uses personal items to recreate bedrooms on either end of the gallery space; a video collage collected over five years is also projected on the work. The exhibition invites audiences into the scene to interact with objects, journals, and artists to become part of the conversation.
