In A Grocer’s Essentials, Hu responds to the extraordinary moment that humanity is facing right now. This body of work was created during the stay home period and expresses Hu’s psychological and emotional state whilst immersing deep into his practice in isolation. Reflecting on the current crisis and its resulting impact and restrictions on daily life, the works are also a personal response to questions of ‘Life & Death’. The works manifest itself from Hu’s personal inquiries; how do our lives take shape in a global pandemic? How has the virus sabotaged and interrupted production of supplies that are marked essential to our existence?
