Small Talks Series
We will uncover our erased spatial traces in this live talk between the fine-artists Ocean Leung and Law Yuk-Mui, and academic artist/advisor/urbanist Sampson Wong. Together they will touch on our relations to history, urban planning, and cityscapes— in their works which observe and intervene in the world of street drifting in Hong Kong — with hidden objects that echo stories of human nature.
Sampson Wong (b. 1985) is a Hong Kong based artist, academic and independent curator, lecturer at the Liberal Arts Department of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Sampson Wong's work focuses on contemporary urbanism, socially engaged art and rebel creativity.
Lam Sui Wing is an artist, urban wanderer, columnist, novelist and actor. She is a video-artist based in Hong Kong who manipulates, looks at and plays with scenes within cities, taking our daily observations and flippingo our perspectives on them
Law Yuk-Mui graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA). She is the co-founder of the artist-run organisation Rooftop Institute. Using image, sound and installation as her mediums of preference, and adopting the methodology of field study and collecting, she often intervenes in the mundane space and daily life of the city and catches the physical traces of history, psychological pathways of human, the marks of time and the political power in relation to geographic space.
