Ultra Mongoloids

Ryuta Iwashita's performance explores the tension and fluidity of identity around the race and ethnicity in the South, as inspired by the artist's recurring encounters with neighbors addressing him (a Japanese national) by saying, "Ni hao (hello in Chinese)." Hovering between comfort and discomfort, the artist will playfully render the racial and ethnic typology more obscure and insignificant.
