“Dialogues in Tin Shui Wai” Roving Exhibition @ KUC Space
“Dialogues in Tin Shui Wai” recorded stories happened in Tin Shui Wai with pictures and texts. Reaching the third stop of the roving exhibition, two events were held to initiate dialogues with the community. Inspired by “Humans of New York”, Yan Chi and Or, two post-80s started the campaign “Dialogues in Tin Shui Wai” to record the lives in the area. Their works are now touring around Hong Kong, to introduce Tin Shui Wai in a perspective different from that being portrayed in main stream media, and hoping to inspire civic participation in different communities. The third stop of the roving exhibition was held in March. It was situated in KUC Space in Jordon and two events were held to encourage interaction. The first one was held on March 5, in which Yan Chi and Or shared their vision and goals of the campaign. Storyteller Arvin Cheng and “Highlanders”, a busking team in Tin Shui Wai, also joined the discussion. Another event named “Dialogue with the Legend” was held on March 21. Four guests, including Grace, a mother who is good at storytelling and playing snooker; Bobo, a post-90s who is determined to record the stories of her generation; Justin, a local artist who gained Hong Kong Contemporary Award; and Pearl, an expressive arts facilitator and life and death education tutor, attended and told their own stories. Through the dialogue with the guests, participants learnt to understand different people and explore the interesting stories available all around.
