‘Mixed Emotions (Portrait of Lisa and Ruby)’ captures moving image portraits of people within the Asian diaspora. Constructed using cultural artefacts belonging to the subjects, the work reveals individual stories defined by growing up mixed race in South East Queensland, and unites connections and crossovers of culture for second generation Asian Australians. Slow-moving video and still photography capture Lisa Tran Kelly in her mother’s Ao Dai dress dancing with a lotus flower symbolic of Vietnamese culture. Incense smoke drifts out of earthy pots and jade coloured jewellery pays homage to Ruby Yu-Lu Yeh’s Taiwanese heritage.
