, name for many places in Hong Kong, represents a time in the past. However, one of its different versions of Chinese translation tells nothing more than the wish of the people: “Region of Profits” (維多利 wik dor lei). What it is meant by history and culture, in some local Chinese mind, could be something else. Perhaps this is also the reflection of local culture.
In Victoria Tunnel, makes use such dual significance and the concept of passage: a virtual tunnel from the historical Victoria to the “Region of Profits” to address our experience of life and memory. The exhibits are basically divided into 3 parts. They are “Region of Profits”, “Victory Over Victoria”, and “On the Peak of Victoria”.
As part of the Para/Site’s dialogue programme, also invited ceramic artist to create another installation in response to the idea of passage and tunnel. However, is inspired by human body and organic forms, taking a microscopic view of passage that his work is entitled Entering a Creature. With the juxtaposition of Victoria Tunnel and Entering a Creature, hopefully an open discussion on the idea of passing historically, culturally or even conceptually can be initiated.
