Mong Mong Sho's latest artwork is called Songs of Fishermen. They are a series of watercolour paintings heavily inspired and influenced by his early life which was spent near the sea and around boats and fishermen. His childhood dream was to become the best boat-maker and apparently he didn't make

his dream come true but they still have a special place in his life and philosophy as he mentioned while he was interviewed by Showcase Magazine. Mong Mong Sho believes that we all carry our own boat inside us called life and we need to make it smoother by ourselves.

Aichi Triennale open date was August 1st, 2019. From the first week, just 3 days after the opening, Aichi Triennale had to shutdown section After "Freedom of Expression?" because it hosted an artwork under the name "Statue of a Girl of Peace" by South Korean artist-duo Kim Seo-Kyung and Kim Eun-sung. This section and specifically this artwork presents ianfu or comfort women, a violent act where Japanese authorities forced women and girls living in

places occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army into being sex slaves. This artwork created lots of controversies and as a result, the Mayor of Nagoya demanded the exhibition's withdrawal which Agency for Cultural Affairs satisfied by shutting down the section which hosted this artwork. Even though the exhibit was re-opened on October 8th many artists like Minuk Lim expressed their concern for banning art from the exhibition because of hate speech and politics.
