  • The influx of parallel traders has caused tension to Hong Kong people and completely changed the landscape of the city. The residence becomes strangers. Walking in the street every day, they do not feel as if they belong to their place. It seems difficult to reach their inner voices anymore. The author of the novel L’Étranger Albert Camus used words to reveal the "absurdity" in his daily life. In this artwork, I use transparent brushstrokes to show the “absurdity” that is found in our daily living and is regarded as normal phenomenon. The work also recalls my golden memory of my homeland.
