Sparkle! Counting the Days
Presented by Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Organised by Oi!
‘Counting the Days’ attempts to connect various groups of folks whom, due to different circumstances, find themselves in a state of suspension in borderlands. In creative workshops, story-sharing and discussions, these folks co-create with artists and project team in different visual media that organise and present their stories of lived (and learned) experiences. In these works, vis-à-vis different cultural, social, and political contexts and backgrounds, they attempt to investigate the present — the here and now — which we all share, and within which, co-exist. The exhibition reveals the living status of different folks who have left home, settled in Hong Kong, and returned home, offering the audience textured glimpses into their everyday moment and emotion in order to find a path towards each other.
Project Curating Team: Same Same Different Association ∋ Yentl Tong
