After the Aichi Triennale closed in 2019, Kyun-Chome immediately moved to Hong Kong to participate in the democracy movement. In 2019, after the Aichi Triennale closed, Kyun-Chome immediately moved to Hong Kong to participate in the democracy movement. After the Aichi Triennale closed in 2019, Kyun-Chome immediately went to Hong Kong to join the democracy movement, where he saw leaflets overlapping the former Japanese army and the Chinese Communist Party, and young people calling the Hong Kong police the “Imperial Army. As soon as the year started, the COVID-19 pandemic began.

For Kyun-Chome, the Aitori riots, the democratization movement in Hong Kong, the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and the Olympics are all connected, and they swirl around him like a curse. In this exhibition, infectious diseases, democracy, resistance and oppression, men and women, people, animals and plants, the past and the future, and many other things intersect and lead to the act of transforming the curse into a prayer. Kyunchome calls this act a “vaccine for oneself, created by oneself.
