Metro Series is Morgan Wong Wing-Fat’s latest project. Artist spends hours defacing realistic images in daily newspapers, attempting to conserve through erasure, to make meanings out of elimination, and to invert the imperative boundaries of facts and norms. Although unrecognizable from a distance, one can see traces of the content when scrutinizing these ghostly images, which reveal various political and social incidents.
