Who is Badman?





2020 Installation


On February 16, there was a protest about coronavirus, hold by Asians, on Trafalgar Square. The protest was about “racism is the virus”, but it was facing criticism and discrimination from not only westerners  but also inside of Asian group. Due to the cultural difference, people, who share the same ethnicity but from different educational background, might have different opinion on the necessity of protesting publicly.

So my work was making inversions through altering the design of Batman stickers into “BADMAN”, and questioning in the title——Are they? (Badman). The stickers was also pasted onto the surveillance warning-board and the tower of Trafalgar Square. To me, in this large scale of chaos and angxiety, who should be condemned is questionable.
