after the deluge: Acclaimed Artist Kingsley Ng’s Latest Installation in a Vast Underground Storage Tank
Why We Recommend it
Hong Kong’s oldest, and huge underground storage tank unit is given a temporary new media face lift by artist Kingsley Ng, who creates a symbolic and sensitive installation drawing on the theme of extreme weather and how humans handle it.
Award-winning artist Kingsley Ng continues his exploration of the impact of climate change and how humans adapt to it with after the deluge, an unprecedented large scale exhibit in a underground water tank.
Drawing attention to the unseen heroes of Hong Kong’s flood control forces, the site-specific work is located in Tai Hang Tung Storage Tank.
The construction of the tank was completed in 2004. It was built in response to extreme flooding during the 90s—so bad Nathan road was nicknamed Nathan river. The tank has a capacity of 40 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Tours through the installation, which will be an informative, delicately presented multimedia experience, can be booked online. This is a unique opportunity to experience a hidden part of Hong Kong history and infrastructure presented in a unique way.
