Sailor Neptune Part II (current)
March 12 - May 22, 2017
Sailor Neptune - Part II is the second in a series of exhibitions exploring relations between fantasy and gender. This show features works by Maria Fernanda Cardoso (Australia/Colombia) and Angela Su (Hong Kong,) in which perceptions on sexuality, sex organs and representations of the body are questioned through a symbiosis between humans and nature.

About Sailor Neptune:
Several generations across East-Asia and beyond recall Sailor Neptune and her partner Sailor Uranus as the queer characters of the Sailor Moon manga series, often represented being intimate with each other. For many, the two may have been the first lesbian figures encountered in their childhood, both in print and on TV, making Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus archetypical lesbian figures throughout many parts of contemporary Asia. Coincidentally or not, “uranian" was a Victorian term for homosexuality (originally used for someone with "a female psyche in a male body”) and adopted by several artists and intellectuals — including Oscar Wilde — as part of their early efforts of emancipating gay identity.
The exhibition series Sailor Neptune is generously supported by the Young Collector Collective's Funding Project, Hong Kong Arts Development Council and Friends of Neptune. For this show we also thank Blindspot and Simon Lee Gallery.
