Relinquishing the quiet sculptures he makes through material exploration, Jia Le Ling embarked on a new adventure to explore performance. His journey began with making puppets and masks and then choreographing movements to go with them. These activities of playing with objects, storytelling, and acting triggered memories of playtime with his cousins. He remembers playing the homewrecking villain while his cousins scurry into their makeshift blanket tent. He is also reminded that he really enjoys reenacting scenes from Kung Fu shows he would watch as a child, jumping from sofa to sofa fighting imaginary villains. In the process of creating these performative works, he felt like he has unlocked a wider scope of playfulness that he did not possess during his material exploration phase. Playfulness is necessary for these performances because the key message is freedom. It is also a way to tell himself to be bold enough to be authentically himself. This does not only refer to self-acceptance of personal identity but also embracing the uniqueness of his own cultural heritage, including those Kung Fu shows he enjoys watching.
