Chewy  Profile Picture
Performing Art – New York - NYC, NY

Chiu Yi (Chewy) Hannah Yukon is a queer bi-cultural hybrid multi-genre artist from Singapore and New Zealand. Her work investigates the inherent failure of articulation, both as a linguistic mechanism as well as a by-product of transmission.

Her chapbook ATOA: A Meditative Poem Through the Alphabet won the Southeast Inaugural Editors' Choice Digital Chapbook Prize.
