From imagining sci-fi scenarios and pondering trauma to painting animals and Hong Kong landscapes and using recycled materials to create sculptures, this month’s art exhibitions demonstrate local and international artists’ talents in depicting the world around them.

1. PHD: Planaria
Kyoto-based multidisciplinary artist Sasaoka Yuriko challenges socio-political topics such as gender, suicide and the Asia-Pacific war with her video installations, and creates works that reference myths and theatre. In this Hong Kong exhibition, she explores the theme of trauma by borrowing from the resilient nature of the planarian, a flatworm that can regenerate lost body parts, as a metaphor. One highlight is a three-channel installation named Planaria (2021), which features 20 handmade dolls with fish heads collected by the artists to portray mortality through a surrealist ritual of death and regeneration.
