Cam Wu

Cam Wu (she/her) is a Chinese-Australian artist working on Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung land. Her practice is underpinned by an interest in ritual and narrative, bringing together broader histories and personal stories. What Day? traces the continuity between the playground rituals of childhood and the mundane routines of adult life. Now as an adult, the artist re-enacts a game from her own childhood, investigating the role of play in social connection and learning at all stages of human development. Games that appear to have been lost to childhood resurface as persistent memories in adulthood, adding an indulgent sense of satisfaction and bittersweet nostalgia to even the most mundane of routines.
