Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.

Lijie Ong - I am the child I never had

This series features narratives brimming with metaphors, weaving morbidly lush landscapes and anatomized bodies in my journey to translate a disoriented reality of vulnerability and self-awareness. The works act as a visual channel of reflecting on my concerns of entering and discovering womanhood; the cumulating experiences of juvenile prepubescent self to the teenage adolescent and finally the present stage of adulthood.
