On How to Say Goodbye / Sep 24, 9pm HKT / Suitcase Institute /Only accessible through @suitcaseinstitute on Instagram / Suitcase Institute is pleased to announce the official inaugural performance for On How to Say Goodbye (2020), an artwork by artist Nicole Wong. Nicole Wong’s suitcase is a meditation on impermanence, memory, intimacy, life, death, and farewells. Here, a vintage, taxidermy fox appears to be sleeping; nearby are items that connote acts of intimacy and connection, such as a comb, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and postcards. When displayed, the artwork invites passers-by to examine their own relationship to loss, grief, and mortality, creating moments of connection in unexpected places.
