    Abstract: During the period of diaspora in the West, Asian women battled with the dilemma of identities of sex, gender, ethnicity, nation, religion and culture. Since the definition and the interpretation of the epistemology about "other" is decided by the hegemony of the western pedagogical system, the emergent Asian women immigrants are attempting to retell their experiences in order to subvert or displace the meaning and the stereotype of Other, which can heal the traumas of memories. Body has been playing a pivotal role when encountering women's issues and it is also a contact zone to perform the difference. Thus, Asian American Women can reconstruct the location of displacement by either writing or performing their body images to anticipate the stories of traumatic diasporic memories. In this paper, the Korean American artist-Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, and the Vietnamese American artist-Hanh Thi Pham are chosen to be representative examples of analysis. Cha's performance art is the conceptual ceremony of the sadness of losing identity, whereas Pham's photography of a naked lesbian Buddha tries to challenge the gender, religious icons both in the East and the West. Under the body discourse from Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and T. Minh-ha Trinh's promotion of writing the body experience, this paper aims to challenge the discourse of history, and also to analyze how the arts of these two Asian American women could be the rebirth and healing of traumas and memories.
