Hedy Leung
Leung has a holistic approach to the balance of energies between human and nature. In her everyday practice, she explores the healing and revitalizing powers of sound, plants, and sogetsu ikebana.

Isaac Chong Wai
The political and performative qualities of Chong’s artistic practice are incorporated by an interdisciplinary approach, processing the exigency of societal shifts and global phenomena.

Winnie Soon
Soon is an artist coder and researcher interested in the cultural implications of digital infrastructure that addresses wider power asymmetries.

Oscar Chan Yik Long
Chan’s artistic practice focuses on personal experience and explores the conditions of life, how individuals associate themselves with others, fear, mythologies and popular visual culture.

Leung Chi Wo
As a visual artist, Leung combines historical explorations with conceptual investigations in a modern urban setting.

Anson Mak
Moving image and sound artist Anson Mak is interested in urban redevelopment, queer culture and well-being in the forms of experimental ethnography and essay film.

Angela Su
Su explores perception and imagery of the body through metamorphosis, hybridity and transformation. Her research-based projects materialize in drawings, videos, hair embroidery, performative and installation works.

Musquiqui Chihying
The filmmaker and multimedia artist Musquiqui Chihying explores the cultural and social identities constructed through the flow and circulation of audiovisual elements.

Durch ihren Umzug von Hong Kong nach Basel 2017 begann sie sich mit der komplexen und sich verändernden Natur von „homeland“ auseinanderzusetzen. Die Ausstellungsreihe befasst sich mit unterschiedlichen Narrativen und Aspekten von „homeland“: Mit Grenzen, Geschichte, Erinnerung, kultureller Identität, Diaspora, Vertreibung und darüber hinaus.

Stories Exchange Community Event

Bring a postcard of your homeland and share your stories!

Hong Kong artist Bouie Choi believes that landscapes are imbued with memories and histories. As part of her residency with PF25 in Basel from May to June, Bouie is inviting people in Basel to bring a postcard from their homeland to the community project and share the stories they holds with her. This exchange will become part of the inspiration for Bouie’s upcoming exhibition, entitled 'We stay up late to behold the beauty of the stars,' which opens on 13th June. Her exhibition seeks to capture the complexity and emotional resonance between the reality and surreality; visible and invisible; darkness and light, while suggesting the ways she sees that can shape and define our sense of self, community and hope.

About the Exhibition 

Meow Kong and PF25 cultural projects are delighted to present ‘Random Diaries’, the first chapter of  the ‘Homeland in Transit’ exhibition series to be showcased in Zurich. Opening on 13 May to 18 June 2023, this chapter features recent works created from 2019 to the present by eight Hong  Kong and Swiss artists including experimental works on paper by Tashi Brauen; ink on canvas by Oscar Chan Yik Long; moving images by Leung Chi Wo, Lo Lai Lai Natalie, and Angela Su; wearable objects by Andreas Marti; ink on paper by Wai Pong Yu; and a newly commissioned Sogetsu Ikebana installation by Hedy Leung.

Interweaving a diverse range of mediums and techniques including paintings, video works, wearable objects, works on paper and a sogetsu ikebana installation, 'Random Diaries' unveils the artists'  kaleidoscope of memories, emotions and consciousness, reflecting their 'mind's eye' observations of the environs in constant states of flux. Amid the current global instability, this exhibition chapter highlights the concept of collective and individual memories, the notion of transience and resilience, and evokes a sense of chance and risk-taking. It leaves us wondering: where will these transformations lead us?
