Hong Kong Re-Imagined: Urban Scans of Post-Industrial Landscapes 5.0
Why We Recommend it
This show features 3D scanned works by 28 artists on the notion of Hong Kong’s cultural landscape re-imagined, re-assembled and re-interpreted.
Post-Industrial Landscapes 5.0: Urban Scan explores the urban realm of Hond Kong and its potential for new architectural and narrative grounds. It is presented by the Architectural Association Visiting School Hong Kong.
The show depicts how Hong Kong is a collaged city ionstructed with unique urban components, ranging from Tai Kwun – the newly open heritage-revitalised cultural institution, to the overcrowded cemeteries along the hillsides and the bustling streets of Sham Shui Po.
The show explores the city’s artificiality and the resulting cultural production through the works of Hong Kong artists South Ho, Ko Sin Tung and Trevor Yeung.
The intricacy of this exhibition is foregrounded by the multitude of urban scenography and the breakthrough of inherent boundaries, signifying Hong Kong in urbanism terms as an exception, not a model – never been able to be adapted by another planned city.
