what is saudade is yuánfèn is longing by Linda Chen
Smoke seeps through in a bushfire summer smells like // cigarettes in Grandpa’s Shanghai apartment smells like // incense on the day your most loved // turn to ash.
How do you pack away a life?
Constructed from fragmented, personal family memories, what is saudade is yuánfèn is longing is a one woman art project exploring notions of home and the pull between the disintegration and (re)claiming of cultural/family identity as westernised Chinese diaspora. Framed in the context of both personal and collective grief, loss and longing, this is an attempted reliving of the things you can’t take with you, as well as the discovery that some things – they don’t ever really leave.
