Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This is a vintage wooden box made in the first half of the last century, depicting the outbreak of plague in Hong Kong in 1894. The colonial government carried out quarantine by confining patients and those suspected having disease in a ship called Hygeia in Victoria Harbour. It deepened the distrust amongst the Chinese towards Western medicine and Westerners. Poppy flower and Kowloon Walled City are depicted in the drawing in which its format is based on medieval manuscripts.
