Kingsley Ng Record : Light / 3’06″ / 2008
This Is Hong Kong is a videoprogramme that presents a selection of artists from Hong Kong which reflects on the idea of politics, history, architecture, postcolonial issues and daily life in this territory. Moving image has been one of the areas favored with an intense research in the creative practice of the Hong Kong art scene, and marks a stark difference with that of mainland China, reflecting on differences in cultural background and academic training. This Is Hong Kong presents a unique visual picture of what is Hong Kong now, through an analysis from video, providing a fresh snapshot of development of the territory after postcolonial devolution in 1997.
After successfully being shown in LOOP Festival in Barcelona (Spain), the exhibition is touring to Seoul (Korea). This Is Hong Kong will be shown in LOOP Alternative Space from July 4 to August 24. This international tour will continue in Hamburg’s Subvision Festival, and Chalk Horse Art Center (Sydney, Australia) later this year.
