About the exhibition

Once upon a time, there was a little girl, is an autobiographical exploration of Meng’s experiences of early childhood and family, tracing those memories to her time in Australia. The exhibition reflects Meng’s analogical memories from different localities.

Space and time mix in the memories. Reality and fantasy blend in the narrative.
