Take a walk with Miko and discover Chi Ma Wan’s rich little stories.

Dried-leaf Ink Making

Sap Fong

Passing by the villages on the islands, you may notice the smell of burning leaves. Sweeping fallen leaves is a part of daily life for islanders - and Sap Fong's members, who live in a small village on Lantau. They burn the leaves into charcoal, add water, and grind the charcoal into ink. The colour made with dried leaves is a gift of nature.  Sap Fong invites participants to look for the scent of burning leaves, enjoy the process of ink making under a tree, and use the ink to write down your feelings to nature.

Open Sesame

Maoshan Connie

Many describe Hong Kong as a concrete jungle, but one can never deny just how many beautiful and precious hills and seas we have around us.

Let’s share stories – local stories and related picturebooks – under a beautiful old tree in Chi Ma Wan, while collecting passers-by and locals’ letters to their favourite trees. Maoshan Connie will illustrate participants’ chosen trees and display them on site, meanwhile uploading them to the ‘Dear Tree Mailbox’ online platform.

Cheung Chau Wave

When we board the ferry to Cheung Chau we travel both physically and in our minds. This new online project curated by Cheung Chau Wave 浪長洲 aspires to augment and compliment the experience of the passengers, residents and visitors alike, by making a simple offering of artwork specially crafted for the journey.

What if, putting social media and tv aside for just a minute, we are reminded to look out the window and notice the world floating past whilst, for example, listening to a poem by a local artist? How can we bring art into our everyday, switching us into the present, and maybe even go sailing in our imagination?

With works of Au Tze Long 區子朗 [HK], Basil Hui [HK], Chantoneasy / Lism / Eco Cheung Chau [HK], Dan Carew [HK], EBMx [PH], Evan Binkley [HK], Finnalicious [PL], Gary Ng [HK], IZEN [HK], Knudsen / Jensen [NO / HK], Mokshajuana [HK], Nick Florent [HK], Patrick Ford [VN], Preston Hartwick [HK], Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze [HK], Sarah Greene [HK], Stefan Irvine [HK], Tomislav Marcijuš [HR], Wong Wei Him [HK], Xie Rong [UK/CN], Yasuhiro Ogawa [JPN].

Natasza Minasiewicz

Can Hong Kong afford to lose the breath of a true island? ‘URBAN ENTITY, PIER’ is a performance-based conversation at the Chi Ma Wan ferry pier on Lantau Island, using the formation of the ferry pier as a representation mode and reference point to discuss the pace and quality of life in a global metropolis, Hong Kong’s endless land reclamation and insular identity in the context of environmental and social instability.

The pier here is a moment of tension, a threshold where urbanity entered the rural area with its all-natural attributes. It announces the changes with its seemingly static, concrete body and ferry vessels plunging on schedule; disappearing territorial borders between developed and undeveloped, nature and city, concrete and rock, the speed and slowness of movement, sanity and insanity of a postmodern city.

Format: Presentation by Natasza Minasiewicz followed by discussion with guest speakers and audience.
