Bethany’s practice addresses post-colonial identity, exploring culture, language, gender and authenticity. Having moved multiple times, Bethany seeks to understand an authentic identity by examining representation, place, and socially constructed ideas of multiculturalism. Although only having lived in Australia or America, her Chinese-Malay heritage has constantly informed her worldview, as well as people’s understanding of her. Using these relationships, Bethany interrogates both the personal and political space of migration and colonisation.
