Presented by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Jockey Club New Arts Power is proud to present Leung Chi-wo’s multimedia exhibition “Home and Non-home“ at Eaton HK from 20 November to 11 December 2020. Virtual tour of the exhibition is now available online.
Leung Chi-wo’s reflective practice combines historical exploration with conceptual inquiry within a contemporary cityscape. Ranging from photography and video to text and installation, his multidisciplinary work is concerned with the undetermined relationship between conception, perception and understanding, especially in relation to site and history within cultural and political frameworks.
The concept of “home” has always been a recurring subject of reflection and creation in Leung Chi-wo’s work. Leung says, “By deliberately misplacing ‘home’ in a ‘non-home’ setting “Home and Non-home“ examines the immaterial and vacillating notion of ‘home.’ Instead of a mere physical shelter, dwelling at home infers peaceful and settled emotional conditions. “Home and Non-home“ ignites rhetorical mediations on recent turbulence of Hong Kong: what if ‘home’ becomes ‘non-home,’ and what if ‘non-home’ calms the shattering souls?”
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
