Trocadero Projects presents an exhibition of new and experimental photographic work and related writing from emerging artists Luce Nguyễn-Hunt, Rômy Pacquing McCoy, Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖 and Estelle Yoon. In SURFACING, these four artists challenge the traditions of the photographic medium as they explore and extend personal and community archives through a queer and diasporic lens.

Korean-Australian artist Estelle Yoon pursues the philosophy of wabi-sabi, searching for and expressing simplicity and transience, through analogue photography and filmmaking. Vietnamese, Samoan and Rarotongan artist Luce Nguyễn-Hunt uses digitally manipulated moving image, photography, poetics and sound to examine their place at the intersection of cultural history, queerness and observed intergenerational ties. Ilocano-Visayan and Austrian artist Rômy Pacquing McCoy draws on ancestral practices of art making through their encounters with found and inherited materials, and Chinese-Malaysian artist Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖 creates critical dialogue through socially engaged visual narratives that explore the transnational Chinese diaspora.
