“The questions Chan ponders through Chicken Girl surround the idea of home—both geographical and spiritual—as well as identities and existence in general.” —La Source
“With humour and levity, this genre-blending, mouth-watering, inter-galactic adventure asks: Why did the chicken cross the road?” —My Van City
“Derek divulged that when he first moved to Canada, he avoided speaking Cantonese. But he realized that cultural history is not something he could separate from his identity. It is in his blood. Re-embracing his identity, he often incorporates Cantonese in his work, making it cross-culturally resonant.” —Sing Tao (in Cantonese)
