Chao-Ying Rao (BETTY) is an East Asian multi-disciplinary artist whose experiences in sex work heavily influence her practice. Her interests are often fringe as she believes what causes us discomfort speaks volumes about our culture and shared values. Her work often asks challenging questions that prompt us to re-evaluate our intuitive reflexes, with the aim of reaching a nuanced and more compassionate understanding of each other and the world we live in.
