智海漫畫展: 圖書館與六樓地下室 Chihoi comics show: Library & 6/F Basement
– Library & 6/F Basement –
Library & I’m with my Saint are Chihoi’s latest comic books. Library tells tales of a strange library where people indulge in memory in the sea of books, or those who stroll freely in the heat of the Book Inferno. I’m with My Saint is a selection of Chihoi’s comics released over the past 12 years in local and international anthologies, now compiled for the first time in Chinese.
The exhibition takes place in ACO Art Space on 6/F of Foo Tak Building. It features not only the original drawings from the two books, but also the hidden chapter of “Library – the Basement”, which is available for reading only within a special Reading Room. Let’s plunge in the 6/F Basement!
