City Space [Mysterious Art Installation inside the City]—Gallery Talk

May 19, 2001
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm


Para/Site Art Space, 2 Po Yan Street, Sheung Wan

The space of the city is the context for our everyday living experience, it is a mysterious world but full of potential. When art and space merged together to become installation art, art activity would no longer be confined to the physical boundary of the gallery, it would expand into the space outside and the city would become a laboratory of art.

A large group of installation artists formed by close to forty art students from the University of Hong Kong, Chinese University, Polytechnic University, City University, and the Art School (RMIT programme of the Hong Kong Arts Centre) are involved in this very special project. Students worked together with professional artists to make secret installations in the neighbourhood of Para Site Art Space in Sheung Wan, transforming the hidden corner of our city into the stage for art. Their installation activities and the process are documented in photographs, video, and text and are displayed in the gallery of Para Site, investigating the concept of public art, gallery, time, and the potential space of our city.

This exhibition is curated by Kacey Wong.
