Project Statement

GLORY 503

Laws of Hong Kong, Cap. 503 Fugitive Offenders Ordinance.

In 2019, the anti-extradition law movement in Hong Kong is awakening. Life is full of hopelessness, anger, hatred, day after day. The lingering news is visually and emotionally overwhelming, and inescapable. I am constantly being at a loss.

With daily houseware, I can gradually reconstruct moments in the movement, with a sense of security.

Part of the images proposes anger and fear. The ordinary is now unrecognisable, breaking off, dehumanising and violent. Yet the light among us is enduring new significances and values.

The Space Museum with laser beam, Hong Kong road, and especially the Lion

Rock, which used to be a twisted symbol of the materialistic Hong Kong spirit

has its new identity. it is heartening to know that materialism is no longer the only totem for Hong Kongers.

Glory to Hong Kong.
