Artwork Description

Inspired by poet Leung Ping Kwan (a.k.a Yesi), artist Koon Wai Boon pays tribute to the symbol of nobility, strength and humility represented by bamboo in his eponymous artwork. Meanwhile, Yesi’s new poem Leaf Connection is one of the most significant works in modern Hong Kong literature. Through the imagery of walking in a lotus field, the poem metaphorically explores communication between individuals, self-preservation, and finding meaning in the world, while also opening up a vast and expansive realm of possibilities.
