NGO DEI: 90 Days of you, Gwyneth Ho Exhibition

27 July @ 13:00 4 August @ 19:00

About the Exhibition:

saar_voirvivre and Gwyneth Ho formed a deep bond during their time as classmates and roommates at the University of Amsterdam in 2018. After Gwyneth Ho returned to Hong Kong to participate in the legislative council primaries, she was charged under the Hong Kong national security law and detained. During this period, saar_voirvivre used her paintings to narrate their friendship and pay tribute to the relentless spirit of those fighting for Hong Kong’s democracy. The 90 paintings refer to the initially set 90-day case that tragically extended to over a thousand days of detention for Gwyneth. 

The color blue dominates the exhibition, symbolizing Gwyneth’s name (藍), integrity, resilience, purpose and spirit. This color symbolizes for saar_voirvivre the many different emotions which go together with the story of their friendship. Blue symbolizes beauty, melancholy and the sparks of hope and joy. It is a color with incredible depth and a perfect fit for this story.
