Scope and Content

Fusionable Cheongsam is the results of a project by Wessieling focusing on the Cheongsam and the hybridity. For the artist, and for Hong Kong, the cheongsam is more than simply a garment; it is simultaneously an object, an image, a commodity, and a sign. Wessieling's work explores these different orders of significance, how they were formed culturally and historically, and how they operate on a contemporary level.
