《Animal 1516ing》


Digital Collage

50cm x 50cm


《Animal 1516ing》 is the inner space that’s full of the feeling of 1516*. The self-struggle has become the new normal for some of us because of the political chaos and the sensational news coverage that has occupied our lives for more than a year. Meanwhile, the pandemic and the social movement in Hong Kong made the Animal Crossing be the trend for 2020, and the literal faraway island can let us do whatever we want - it’s freedom.


Only the literal faraway island on Animal Crossing can be our Neverland?

Could we live in a place without the feeling of 1516?


*1516 is a phrase in Cantonese pronunciation, which means struggling to make a decision.
