Thank you very much for joining us at our first HOMELAND in TRANSIT VIDEO TALKS which was launched in Basel on Tuesday 25th February in which we presented Hong Kong artists May Fung and Law Yik Mui’s video works. Many congratulations to the two artists on the first presentation of their works in Switzerland. 🎥📹


A big thank you to the audience who brought us non-native plants and shared with us their stories to make the video installation of Law Yuk Mui’s ‘Junk Bay, The Plant’ (1990-present) more alive. Stay tuned as the installation will continue to grow in Basel. 🌴🍀🌿🌵

Thank you again to the two Hong Kong artists May Fung and Law Yuk Mui for making a video conversation for our VIDEO TALKS in Basel, especially during this difficult time of the coronavirus outbreak in Hong Kong. Our thoughts go to the Hongkongers. 🙏🏼

  • HOMELAND in TRANSIT

Thank you everyone for joining the inaugural exhibition of our curatorial project HOMELAND in TRANSIT in Basel last June where we discussed the notions of boundary, cultural identity, collective memory, root, history, diaspora, dislocation through works by eight Hong Kong artists. Transitioning into a fresh decade and a new lunar zodiac 12-year cycle with unknown possibilities, we look forward in 2020 to expand our community of family and friends and explore new forms of exchange: first with a VIDEO TALKS series planned for different locations including Switzerland, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan and with upcoming exhibitions at Villa Meier-Severini Zollikon in March and Basel Old Town in June. We take this opportunity to wish everyone an auspicious Year of the Rat filled with creative energies!
