The Bull Horn Research Centre (BHCRC) (2020 – ongoing), is an archive documenting the Vietnamese diaspora through its colonial past. The project entails the collecting, preserving, tagging, and cataloguing of Bull Horn Cakes, more commonly known as the croissant, from Vietnamese bakeries. The research centre is a portrait of diaspora. It is a portrait of the labour and businesses of the Vietnamese community, of how the colonial baggage that we carry with us can be co-opted transformed and made our own.
