In the second month of her stay in Berlin, Wai Kit Lam continues to examine her identity in this foreign city through language. The new piece is based on a book that she found in a second-hand store. It was once belonged to someone called Alexander Simon and that he had highlighted some sentences in the book. Lam will reinterpret those German sentences by her own interpretation, in which she could not understand the language and the content. The understanding of the content is not important; it is rather a link of the relationship between the unknown Alexander Simon and Wai Kit Lam instead. Lam graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, University of London, in 1996. In 2003, she received her MFA from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Wai Kit Lam continues to explore the notion of language in her last month residency in Berlin. And this time she collaborates with a London based Italian artist, Ivan Lupi. This new series entitled 'This is not a Portrait', Wai Kit Lam and Ivan Lupi reveal a condition of illusory idea about identity. It starts at a loss in translation while Wai Kit Lam was confused by the German names of cosmetic products. She spent a long time in front of the branches in a cosmetic shop, by only choosing and understanding the names if they are the right products she needed. In the end she wasted her time with something that is in fact not important in her life. So what is the importance of choosing and using cosmetic products; do they really help and represent our own self? Ultimately it fabricates us with fake identity. It is because those deceptive masks construct a self that is not belonged to our own, and that is only a superficial presentation of which our society constructs us. That is not a genuine self and with mask everyone has already lost his/her own identity. In truth we present and deceive not only to the others, but also to our own selves. Lam graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, University of London, in 1996. In 2003, she received her MFA from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
