Film Screening: Totoki


Woomin Hyun

In 2049, 30-year-old “I” reminisces about her hometown on a remote island in Hong Kong. She remembers the island being connected to the land, and the sea is no longer around. Hong Kong is no longer Hong Kong, but only part of the empire. She opens her notebook and writes about an imaginary traveller who visits her hometown in the summer of 2019, the year she was born. Back then, it was still an island.

URBAN ENTITY, PIER


Natasza Minasiewicz

Can Hong Kong afford to lose the breath of the 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 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 enters the rural area with its all-natural attributes. It announces the changes with its concrete body and ferry vessels plunging on schedule. 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.

Dialogue: Species of Spaces


Joshua Lam/HKPSI, Géraldine Borio & Sampson Wong

Spaces of encounters or spaces of appropriation; how can we define public spaces? Joshua Lam (Hong Kong Public Space Initiative) and Géraldine Borio will discuss their respective interpretations and how it influences their choice of intervention with urbanist Sampson Wong. Exchanging with the audience, they will draw on the similarities and differences between Cheung Chau and Peng Chau, highlighting the power of people in the making of spaces.

Using the public space and a specially-curated installation as location, the dialogue will be an experiment in itself showing the flexibility of islands’ public spaces in hosting a variety of functions.
