Shield of weakness by Liao Hongyu was inspired in his first year living in Antwerp, his personal way to find protection in hard times. And is there a more opportune moment than now? Fascism, Protests, COVID-19, a big witch hunt shaking our structures. No moment in time has been more appropriated for it. And yet, you can find beauty, mistery and redemption in his work. All of it behind an apocalypse now dystopian fashion.
