Adam (Moy) (they/them) is a queer Teochew American artist and educator whose work explores domestic objects as containers for identity, grief, and care. Their practice draws upon their personal, familial, and cultural archives, using objects such as vessels, chairs, and altars as stand-ins for a lived experience within our everyday. Through reproduction of and disidentification with the veneration of ancestors, including Buddhist, Taoist, and animistic rituals, their practice seeks new meaning for trans, queer, and disabled bodies that are so often denied physical and emotional shelter. Working within ceramics and Chinese iconography, their work seeks to reconsider the regimented and often gendered conventions of these traditional forms, using these vessels as a means to locate community, find collective power in trans and queer alienation, and map out the possibilities for a freer and more unruly future.
