Terraces Topography: Yu Lan Festival

Jan 31, 2000 – Feb 12, 2000
Para/Site Art Space
2 Po Yan Street, Sheung Wan

Rosanna Li Wei Han


In this project, the artist and researchers studied the lives of ordinary people and their interaction with their physical living environments. Artworks created in response to the findings are then shown in four different galleries in the district. In Para Site, Rosanna Li exhibited an installation of her clay figures inspired by celebrations of the Ghost Festival in the neighbourhood.

Li Wei Han, Ho Siu Kee, Hung Keung, and Kith Tsang Tak Ping intend to work together in this project viewing that art activities should draw closely on local life experiences. They scrutinize ‘common’ people’s daily life and their interactions with the living physical and material environment and transform such production of common culture into artistic expressions. The process of art is the active searching, seeing, analyzing, testing the society as well as its culture, the artwork production is thus the creative response to the lifeworld. They have been working individually with their own means of expression and media. Now the artists join together to engage different art forms to conglomerate a pluralistic (re)presentation of the daily life of our city. In the end, art activities enrich and become part of life experiences.

The exhibition is curated by Kith Tsang and Ng Hoi Chi.
