"Barnacles", 2019 is comprised of 380 concrete casts of plastic egg packaging embedded with hex nuts, translucent blue resin and cable ties which gives them a sense of individuality while they "inhabit" the gallery space. They are held together in groups and in space by magnets, climbing up the gallery’s metal surfaces, such as radiators, pipes and windows, or scattering across the floor. Their anthropomorphic shapes and cluster formations echo Acorn Barnacles which stick to rocks, turtle shells, boats and bridges in nature. Chan plays with the contrast of the solidified and robust concrete barnacles that in fact came from the mass-produced human solution to deal with the fragility of egg shells during transportation. What once was a generic and hollow egg packaging, has now become unique, animated and solid. For Chan, this highlights the strange co-existence between nature and human inhabitants in the Anthropocene epoch.
