Catalogue Note

The child figure is dressed in the artist’s signature Dutch wax fabric, representing the hope and optimism for future generations. The lantern symbolises hope in the wake of advancing medical research. The featured names on the globe are prominent activists, performers or supporters who fought for the rights of AIDS sufferers at the height of the epidemic in the 1980s.
