Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This work is inspired by the secret underground lair of someone like James Bond 007’s arch enemy. The hero has just disabled some vital piece of equipment and the whole place is about to explode. Sirens are wailing, things are smoking and this sign is flashing, urging all remaining henchmen still alive to run away.

Sadly for Hong Kong, the National Security Law imposed in 2020 gives this work a particular poignancy. But while we still have the free will to do what we want, this flashing sign says take some time to let yourself go and live life with abandon.
