Within modern imaginaries of migration and those who partake in migration, A woman’s wish hopes to humanise and give agency back to women who migrate as intimate workers. The piece depicts a Vietnamese intimate worker. In her traditional Áoi Dái but is coloured with a much more human story of migration, to the borders she faces adorned with barbed wire, but also the agency and choices she has made within these confines the flowers breathing new life. The crane over her shoulder lastly symbolises not only how she is perceived as a perpetual victim of circumstance; and often exoticised, but also the symbol of migration and cycles of life and rebirth from Vietnamese culture itself. In these ways, I hope the piece comes to bring life to the figures who migrate and their very real and human stories.
