Turning to Wallpaper

0 out of 5

In Turning Women to Wallpaper, richly beautiful language contrasts with the disturbing and at times gruesome imagery to create a collection that knows exactly how to haunt the reader. Wong’s words and artistry are both vibrant with color, richly textured, defiant, and unapologetic in their boldness. Her speaker begins her spiritual journey of remembrance that transcends body, tradition, or even nation in the pursuit of authentic art that is constructed through the radical acceptance of the past in order to leave it all behind. Turning Women to Wallpaper is a story where no wounds are left unconfronted or softened. It is beautiful, without beauty.

Description

Heidi Wong is a poet and artist who grew up between Beijing, Hong Kong, and New York. Since posting her digital art and poetry on social media at 15 years old, she has developed a unique voice, one of a stark juxtaposition between macabre imagery and intimate language. Her third collection, Turning Women to Wallpaper, focuses on the idea of transcendence of the silenced and demonized female body, conceptions of femininity and masculinity, tradition, and nation to reconcile with one’s past.
