2015 marks 40 years since the end of the Second Indochina War and the beginning of Hmong exodus and resettlement—including to Australia.
This project involved 14,600 coloured paper folded into the form of yaj khuam ceeb khaum (Hmong spirit money) to mark everyday since that time, and to celebrate and commemorate. Made by members of the Hmong community as well as the wider public, this is a process-based work to foster cross-cultural dialogue and encourage the ‘the porosity’ between cultures and experiences, facilitating empathy, thought and dialogue in regards to the plight of all refugees and Australia’s immigration policies past and present.
