MAN MAN CHI
2022
Digital Video, stereo sound
15’28”



For Made In China Festival, the artist made a video in
collaboration with their maternal grand-parents Yaying & Peixan,
who together with Maily’s mother, moved from China to Europe in the 80s.

Layers of symbolism unfold, attached to some of their grand-parents favorite cafés, parcs, or shops.
By following and filming them on their promenades through Paris,
YLÏAM grows a new sentimentality and value for their native city,
and their familiys past.
