Tale of the Wonderland

19 Sep - 11 Nov 2017

“Tale of the Wonderland” is a group exhibition that borrows Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865)the Victorian fantasy novel written by Lewis Carroll, as the framework to construct a collective narrative of the 20 years of post-colonial Hong Kong. Having bid adieu to the colonial era, she was thrown into the rabbit hole, and in 20 years she had to re-learn how to position herself in face of an uncertain future. Her beliefs about her identity and understanding of reality collapse in Wonderland, as she approaches such identity displacement in terms of a fairy tale.
