What are the perfect snacks to bury for winter?
Sauha is the daughter of Chinese immigrant parents from Peru and Hong Kong. She is an artist, designer and gardener based on the unceded traditional territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations, also known as Vancouver, Canada.
Sauha searches for ancestral catharsis through making, looking more closely at waste and adhoc constructions, investigating the nature of manual labour, and envisioning a more livable and equitable future. Harnessing the poetics of repurposing, she confronts what feels disconnected. She gathers local plants, textiles, and discarded things. As well, a big part of why she makes art is to collaborate and explore what it means to build community.
Day to day she works as a certified horticultural technician and is a graduate from Emily Carr University (2016 BDes).
