Where Hong Kong features Chen Jiagang’s Smog City Exhibition – Choked on Beauty. Smog is symbolic to Sichuan artist Chen Jiagang. It not only represents the pollution of the environment and destruction of the ecosystem but also China’s relentless pursuit of industrial growth and the greed of a nation. For the photographic exhibition Smog City, he was particularly influenced by time spent in Chongqing and Wuhan where he noticed people did nothing but eat, drink and play.
