PIGS MAY FLY CHINESE NEW YEAR 2019
Victoria Galleries, Sydney Australia
We interpreted the year of the Pig as a symboling generosity and material property. In collaboration with Matt lai and Kimi Jiang We were inspired by the Chinese custom of giving a gold medal in the shape of a pig as a gift for newborns or the newly married as a token of prosperity. Children born in the Year of the Pig are regarded as lucky. The Pig is amiable and good natured so we have made a connection to the amusing image of the flying pig relating to the expression 'pigs might fly' often used in Australian larrikin humour
