What is the biggest problem in today's art world?

The lack of                          at openings. When I was at art school, all the openings had food. I lived off that daily serving of cheese and crackers. Now most of the galleries don't offer food. How are                                                    meant to eat? 



This body of works subverts Polluta as a utopian artist commune. In 2019, Fung invited her artist friends to join Polluta, asking them to fill out an entry form and express their opinions on the problem(s) of today’s art ecology. The result is sometimes humorous and sometimes unsettling. The viewer can enjoy a glimpse into the art world from an insider’s perspective. These works were exhibited at Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2019) and am space gallery, Hong Kong (2020.)

During 2020-2021, Fung produced a second body of works under the same theme, inviting local and international artists to "join Polluta" as artist residents. The result will be exhibited at the Varna Municipal City Gallery, Varna, Bulgaria as part of the Quarantine Film Festival in summer 2022.
