Finding Love is proposed as an organization website under Hong Kong’s ‘Pink Alliance’ in an attempt to eliminate the stigma surrounding the LGBTQ+ community in Hong Kong. It is a platform for the HK LGBTQ+ community to share their inspirational stories of ‘finding love’ in their relationships with themselves, family, friends and partners.

Snake Skin

Second-hand clothes and textiles

121 × 74 cm

2020

Our old skin sheds when it is damaged or outgrown and it is then replaced with new skin. As the things we wear are considered our ‘second skin’, they should be treated in the same way. However recently, fast fashion has reset the standards of ‘old’ and ‘new’ according to trendiness. ‘Snake Skin’ displays what is truly ‘old’ and ‘new’ using second hand garments that degrade in the form of snake skin shedding. I experiment with the garments’ appearance to make them look both second-hand (‘good as new’) and third-hand (‘worn and torn’) by comparison. As a result, an ‘aura of newness’ emits from the untouched, whiter second-hand garments demonstrating their good condition despite their age.
