Jaffa Lam is a Hong Kong-based sculptor who designs large-scale installations and performances. She produces mixed-media works, primarily made with recycled materials. Known for her commitment to community work, for the past 15 years the artist has been working with local and marginalised people, both in Hong Kong and abroad. For Jaffa, art awakens consciences, as well as being a way of ensuring traditional cultures continue to exist, and she often explores issues related to history, society and current affairs. Tisseur de vœux is Jaffa's first contribution to the Festival of Lights.
