People's Flower

Vintage acrylic ower, synthetic leather-mounted cushion, vintage signage, automotive paint on stainless steel plinth, 116 x 40.3 x 40.3 cm, 2018

In People’s Flower, the artist further develops the historical co-occurrences of the Lam Bun attack by combining “Volks” (people), the first half of a 1967 vintage Volkswagen metal script which came from the rear side of the “Beetle”, and a J. Corelli acrylic Water Lily manufactured in Hong Kong in 1967. The People’s Flower becomes at once a fabricated fiction that was artificially imagined and combined by the artist, and an archival object brought together by history and fate.
