'The Pirate’s Daughter is about healing from dark times. Just like the sailors who lost their lives at sea, their souls were comforted by the piano of the Pirate’s Daughter, ' says Liang. Photo: Poesy Liang

It’s been more than a year since Covid-19 hit the world, forcing us to live in dark and uncertain times. If anything, this is a story of humanity in search of light and hope.

Artist Poesy Liang, through her new works, views these long days of the pandemic as a challenging voyage. Just like the sailors who lost their lives at sea, searching for a song to bring them home.
