Jennifer Wong

Hong Kong and London

The work
A short piece (in Chinese social media via Chinese FT website ) which is a very enlightening dialogue among social media users in China, commenting on the news that a Swedish art collector is donating his collection to Hong Kong instead of China. It also mentions Chinese people's feelings towards the Chinese artists such as Ai Weiwei and Zhang Xiao Gang, and their views towards foreigners' appreciation of Chinese art. It's another world!
