Ham Chơi Girls

My work, Ham Chơi Girls, redefines traditional and stereotypical ideas of Asian femininity. I want to change that narrative of the Asian woman being looked at as docile and submissive and quiet. I want us to be represented as loud, strong, and warrier-like. Even history contradicts these stereotypes. Vietnam was once a matriarchy with strong female warriors leading the way. With images of girls and women lifting weights, or flexing, I attempt to turn the submissive and quiet stereotypes on their head.
