Park Voyage III, 2022

Park Voyage (2022). Commissioned by M+ Museum

Park Voyage is a series of hand-drawn animations commissioned in 2022 by M+ Museum. Inspired by Shek Kip Mei Park, the bike lanes in the New Territories’ township of Sha Tin, and M+ museum, Florence Lee’s expressive animation takes viewers on an imaginary ride through a Hong Kong playground and subway tunnel. Geometric shapes, gestural linework, and rich colours create a fanciful space that intertwines memory and everyday life.
//This series delineates and navigates the artist's hometown Hong Kong, translating her personal memories tied to the city, featuring Lee's signature hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animated video works. The looseness of the drawings allows the works to maintain temporal and locational ambiguity and thus be expansive. Not at the peril of succumbing to the seductive power of glowing memories or the sense of comfort brought by escapism fantasies, Lee's practice playfully de-gravitates the here-and-now and tellingly illustrates contemporary lamentations and desires.//
