“Tale of the Wonderland” is a group exhibition that borrows "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" (1865), the Victorian fantasy novel written by Lewis Carroll, as the framework to construct a collective narrative of the 20 years of post-colonial Hong Kong. Having bid adieu to the colonial era, she was thrown into the rabbit hole, and in 20 years she had to re-learn how to position herself in face of an uncertain future. Her beliefs about her identity and understanding of reality collapse in Wonderland, as she approaches such identity displacement in terms of a fairy tale.

展覽“仙境奇遇”以出版於1865年維多利亞時期的奇幻文學小說《愛麗絲夢遊仙境》作骨幹,建構出一個有關香港脫離殖民時期二十年的集體故事。這二十年來,她被掉進兔子洞,對前途不明感到困惑並需學習重新自我定位。對自己的身份和周遭的現實的認知崩解後,她藉著仙境裡的童話故事重新理解自身的處境 。
