The unexpected onset of COVID-19 has not only heightened that sense of Earth's fragility, but also the place of humanity on it. "Natura is a current topic," says Marreiros. "It affects all of us, in the present and in the future, because the life of the planet is at stake. In addition to these issues, it also allows for more symbolic aspects and research on the symbolism of Mother Earth through ethnic and folkloric manifestations from the entire world."

Look out for works by artists including the Macao-born fashion designer and painter Leong Man Teng, who incorporates her material designs into artworks using her signature "cat head" as a model; the Macao-born, New York-based Crystal Chan, whose unsettling paintings explore notions of displacement, estrangement and sadness; the Macao-based multimedia artist Kit Lee, who loves depicting flowers on video recording, sound installation and graphic painting platforms; and Lau Sut Weng, who explores the conflicts between nature and humans, and mankind's total dependence on it.
