performance for the camera with banana, clear tapes and chair, 100x100cm series of 10 , Giclée Print on Archival paper, edition of 3+1AP, 2011.

Self Portrait (with Banana) responds to the myth and/or biologically proven fact that Asian men have smaller penises. The series of performance for the camera suggests a depth of insecurity through the body's attempt to perform autofellatio on his comically lengthened form of his penis with a banana. At the same and within the context of social hierarchy, the work is a plea against masculine responsibility and racial prejudice, particularly towards 'bananas'- Asians living, born and/or with Western descent.
