PERFORMING TIBETAN IDENTITIES 2018
Performing Tibetan Identities was Nyema's solo exhibition in the Pitt River's Museum in Oxford. Curated by Professor Clare Harris. In this series, Nyema photographed other young Tibetans, whether living in Europe as members of the Tibetan diaspora, or in Tibetan-speaking areas of China. Her pictures document the many things they share as global citizens and consumers of popular culture, as well as the particularities of their Tibetan heritage. By producing double portraits of each person, in daily wearand ‘traditional’ clothing, Nyema alludes to the uidity ofidentity formation and how it may be expressed in dress and objects, revealing the range of options for self-fashioning that are available to contemporary Tibetans.
