2022, 2020, 2019, 2017, 2015... Following a series of number stickers, viewers step into an imaginary world constructed by Lam Tung Pang, reliving what he thought and felt during his sightseeing trips in his hometown. He believes we cannot choose where we call home, but we can choose to travel anywhere. As people and their hometowns are so closely dependent on each other that there is hardly any distance between them, Lam wants to make use of his sightseeing experience to distance himself from the place and read just the way he sees things around him. Through paintings, texts, and video installations, the artist takes a tourist’s stance and presents Hong Kong's landscapes of different ages observed from different perspectives. He invites audiences to enter an imaginary space where time and space are intertwined and further explore the feelings of being a hometown tourist.

 

“Here and There: Re-imagining Hong Kong Landscapes” explores the accumulated meanings and values attached to Hong Kong landscapes and the intimate relationships and emotive bonds between people, landscapes, artistic geographical imagination, and sense of place. This place-based exhibition invited artists Ho Yuen Leung, Koon Wai Bong, Lam Tung Pang, Leung Ka Yin Joey, Wong Chun Hei Stephen, and Wong Lai Ching Fiona, to explore six sites, namely, Victoria Peak, Pok Fu Lam, Kowloon Mountain Ranges, Yuen Long, the peripheral islands, and the Hong Kong Island cityscape, that have long been ascribed historical and cultural value and have dominated the travel discourse of Hong Kong since the nineteenth century.

From quarantine hotels to Tuen Mun, from the city centre to the Kowloon mountains, artists often transform the unremarkable landscape into creative ideas, sharing their reflections on what happened in the city. This session invites 3 participating artists to discuss their imaginations of the local landscape and examine how they expand the perception of eyes, ears, mouth and nose to interpret their sense of place.
