AFR has a story on artist Rose Wong by Lisa Murray. Beijing-based Rose Wong who has recently completed an international residency at Sydney’s TWT Creative Precinct shares about her views on sex, power and Utopia.

“Moving abroad is like taking your heart out of your body and putting it somewhere else to see if the soil is good and it grows.”
