How does one process—or exist in—collective change? 23 local and diaspora artists, musicians, poets and cultural workers ruminate on this in Pillow Hands, Heavy Feet (2019), which chronicles the last six months in Hong Kong. Independently published by editor Ysabelle Cheung and art book press Sulla Fuffa (Eunice Tsang), the zine oscillates between humor and grief, rage and isolation as the contributors share artistic strategies of the current social movement and the ways in which we respond to the politics of emotion. This sharing continues beyond the printed page with a special reading series featuring Wong Kit Yi, David Boyce, Mario Bobbio, Karen Cheung, Tiffany Tam, Lam Tung Pang, and Blessy Man, as hosted by Ysabelle Cheung and Eunice Tsang.
