Yap Yong Hwang is currently studying in junior college. She hopes to become an architect one day, and build things that are both practical and have aesthetic value. “I spend most of my time being fairly weird, and the rest catching up on sleep.”
Eat With Family is a conversation between artist and family; paint and food, and how they (people, food and art) all come together. Yap Yong explores how staples in family meals play a role in fostering inter-personal relationships between different members of a family. By portraying different grains, she aims to explore various grains and their personal meanings, as well as allow viewers to reflect on what various grains mean to them.
