The fight for Hong Kong’s freedom has blossomed in the past year. Facing crackdown, the protest movement could do little to fight back but dug out bricks and set roadblocks – whatever they could get their hands on. After the clashes, Lennon walls around Hong Kong have been painted over, though telltale signs remain as testament to the voices of dissent. On sidewalks, concrete filled holes and cracks spoke to the determination of our freedom fighters, whose sacrifice we will not soon forget.
This series of works crystallise the spirit and stories of our youthful protestors. Through capturing the indelible mark of their ‘gazes’ upon our home city, it is a record of resistance – a resistance built upon ideals, hopes and love.
