Contemporary by Angela Li is pleased to present The Call of the Green, a joint exhibition curated by Eric Shiu-kee Leung. A novel entitled The Call of the Wild was published in 1903 by American author Jack London, which tells a story of a dog named Buck going through sufferings and ultimately returned to the wild. The desire to be free and the longing to return to the wild is simply part of animals’ nature. Humans feel the call of nature even more so now because our lives have been turned upside down in the epidemic; we hope to free ourselves from all kinds of restraints by getting closer to mother earth. Contemporary by Angela Li invites eight artists to participate in the exhibition, whose works focus on the theme of nature, to examine urbanisation and explore human connections with the natural world.
