Precious Cargo


  • ZZHK Gallery G/F, 2 Wa Lane, Sheung Wan Hong Kong Island Hong Kong (map)

Precious Cargo references a play about Khoisan woman Saartjie Baartman - who was bought under colonisation and exhibited as a “freak” around Europe. With this history as its departure point, DGI’s exhibition dismantles the objectification of “African” artists. Precious Cargo explores new narratives where both viewer and artists are confronted with their own insecurities and ignorances.
