HO SIU KEE
Taking the shark’s fin as a visual reference for the shape of the artwork, the metal body of the sculpture reflects the structure of a cage where any man could stand, as if he was imprisoned, to rethink and reconsider the harmful and violence attitude of humans against the other natural beings. The display of the sculpture will be accompanied by post performance photographic material. On the day of the opening, the artist will be standing, bowed head, in this confessional and the artistic effect of the work will be achieved through this live performance.
