In this exhibition of ten Hong Kong–based artists, a relationship of animal species as dominated by human need is questioned through the show’s examination of a multitude of stories, theories, and texts, ranging from Plutarch’s ethical diatribe against eating animal flesh to Chuang Tzu’s theory of animals being beyond consciousness and thus spiritually superior."
