HONOLULU, HAWAII- thirtyninehotel announces the sixth installment of its 39 Chambers Artist Residency Program (39 CARP).
Kris Chau presents Tiger Daughter Returns, a site-specific mural installation exploring her memories growing up on Oahu. Chau usually works in a faux innocent drawing style that appropriates the visual language of illustration to explore her own perceptions and desires.
Growing up in Hawaii and attending public school, I looked at this poster of all the Hawaiian Gods everyday in Hawaiiana class. It had Pele in her 3 forms it had this amazing composition of Hi'iaka in multiple forms and everything was painted so well. When you think about what you do as an adult it has really strong roots in what you were intrigued by as a kid. I spent my whole life both running away and being proud of the fact I was from a tiny Island in the Pacific. But now I am very very very proud to come home after seeing the world and mak
ing art and a career. Hence the title of this show is "Tiger Daughter Returns". I am the daughter of a Tiger Mom, and I am proud to come home as her Tiger Daughter.
