Patrick Kam’s work explores the duplicitous nature of race and human behavior by juxtaposing ordinary domestic objects and machinery. The sculptures provide commentaries on the formation of his identity in a childhood rife with contradiction. The contrary imagery used in the artwork is visually fused together by the use of domestic Western appliance, Eastern symbolism and simple repetitive movements that are suggestive of servitude.
