The Lucky Ones is a project consisting of oil paintings, sculpture and soundscape that follows a multi-generational family at a funeral service. The compositions are intended to represent the ways in which intergenerational trauma manifests across generations through inconspicuous modes of self medication/harm, psychic violence and cultural deterioration.  


Continuing the theme of her previous works, this project aims to express the messiness around second-generation Canadian identity. She plays with the expectation of cultural literacy by misinterpreting or reimagining Vietnamese cultural traditions.
