Continuing from his previous two film works Cortazar Aquarium and Same Boat which were recently shown at Goethe-Gallery, the artist continues the recurring themes on migration and extinction. Shifting between various locations such as botanical gardens, a butcher, museums, a zoo, and virtual space, this multi-channel audio visual installation explores the notion of home and where one resides. Instead of a linear narrative, this film rides on rhythm and sound to present a journey in which its destination is not guaranteed, similar to how one’s identity is a process of evolution.

Established in Hong Kong for more than 20 years, the Goethe-Gallery is a non-profit art space promoting contemporary art from Germany and Hong Kong. Around ten exhibitions, including photography, painting, video and multi-media installation, are presented each year in the Goethe-Gallery and its adjacent Black Box Studio. The Goethe-Gallery is also a platform where art dialogues frequently take place.
