Scherry Shi is a London based multidisciplinary artist.


✍️
Place and placelessness, individuality and collectivity, mobility and fixedness, are constantly mingling and interchanging for diasporic individuals.

The relationships between a place and its inhabitants are central to my practice. Whether the place is a land: a mine, that offers people jobs and attracts immigrant workers to settle down from afar. Whether it is a personal space: a domestic room, that envelops one’s lived experience. Or it is a home, or homes, in which one’s identity is intrinsically associated with and constructed from.

My practice attempts to explore how places shape and impact a person and a community’s identity over time and in reverse, how diasporic individuals adapt to a place and reconstruct the place as their own.

Having lived in different countries with diverse cultural backgrounds, I am interested in the idea of diasporas and diasporic identity and belongings from both an individual’s and a collectives’ perspectives in an unpredicted, fast-changing world. Through working with photography, print, text, textiles and interactive installation to create and reconstruct spaces, I am evoking a sense of place to address my complex research interests.
