Social injustice, government incompetence, police violence, freedom retrogression; how could a citizen create positive change to the society by linking art production and politics? Hong Kong artist Kacey Wong created large amount of political artworks in the past four years, exhibiting them in the streets of Hong Kong during public protest and rallies, expanding the sites for art to exist. His works armed with black humor and a sense of performance, linking art performance and action, resistance the era of Hong Kong political absurdity.

社會不公、政府無能、警察暴力、自由倒退。夠竟市民可以如何參與抗爭,為社會帶來正面的改變?藝術家黃國才過去四年積極創作大量的藝術作品,把它們帶到示威遊行街道的人羣當中,擴張了藝術展出的場地。化黑色幽默為武器,結合藝術行動與抗爭,抵抗這個荒誕連綿的香港政治大時代。
