Popular demand, first-come-first serve! ​ ​ ​ Streetscapes 24360 Hong Kong New Video Work by Hung Keung ​ ​ Hung Keung is interested in the transformative physics of stones and rocks. In the spirit of the traditional Chinese landscape art, landscapes are meant for us to visit, to live in or wander around in. During the pandemic time, people in Hong Kong always had to stay home as a preventive measure. This video captures an almost surreal streetscapes of Hong Kong around the clock and with the movement of the 360-degree camera which creates a tunnel of time and documents the transit of people and the city during this pivotal period. ​ The video consisting of two parts will be looped and on view showing a 360 degree day and night streetscapes of Hong Kong at the window on Jungstrasse 33, 4056 Basel from 1-4 September 18-18h as part of the Kunsttage Basel programme: ​ Streetscapes 24360 Hong Kong 2022 Digital Moving Images DAY: 90 mins NIGHT: 60 mins ​ Part of the architecture models made of cement in the video were referenced from this list of buildings in Hong Kong, some existing, surviving or demolished. ​ ​ ​ Homeland in Transit : Streetscape New Video Work by Hung Keung Curator: Angelika Li Kunsttage Basel 1-4 September 2022 18-18h Jungstrasse 33, 4056 Basel, Switzerland Presented by: PF25 cultural projects Venue Partner: Raymond Gaëtan Architecture & Development Event Sponsor: Meow Kong Supported by: Christoph Merian Stiftung ​ PF25 is a registered non-profit cultural organisation in Basel that needs your participation and support! ​ ​ CARRIED BY THE WIND 10 - 26 JUNE 2022 SALON MONDIAL BASEL/MÜNCHENSTEIN SWITZERLAND Vernissage: 10 June 2022 18-21h Exhibition: 11 - 26 June 2022 Fridays to Sundays: 12-18h Special opening dates 13-16 June: 14-18h Art Basel VIP Programme: 14 June 18-20h RSVP: Team@PF25.org Salon Mondial, Freilager-Platz 9, 4142 Münchenstein/Basel, Switzerland (Tram No. 11 to Freilager) A Group Exhibition of Hong Kong and Swiss artists: Oscar Chan Yik Long (Hong Kong, Helsinki) Isaac Chong Wai (Hong Kong, Berlin) Andreas Marti (Zürich) Kathrin Siegrist + Iva Wili (Basel) Angela Su (Hong Kong) Curated by Angelika Li (Hong Kong, Basel) Co-presented by Atelier Mondial and PF25 cultural projects Supported by Christoph Merian Stiftung Introduction The word ‘homeland’ evokes a physical and permanent form on the surface, yet when we dive a little deeper into our memories and emotions, the word urges us to reflect on its complex and shifting nature. The exhibition channels narratives of ‘homeland’: borders, boundaries, roots, diaspora, cultural identity, colonial ideologies and beyond. Wind is a symbol of change: the vital breath, flow of life. This familiar element can be pleasant and gentle as a breeze or a vigorous air energy as ‘hei3’ (氣) in Cantonese, yet it can be devastating and destructive as a hurricane or an accelerator for fire causing catastrophic damage. Wind also inspires the movements of thoughts and this Homeland in Transit chapter ‘Carried by the Wind’ is indebted to the captivating works by Bob Dylan, Sanmo, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Hayao Miyasaki and Wong Kar Wai. In our fast-expanding world of displacement and exile, the sense of homeland is being constantly questioned and reinterpreted. Does the nature of the wind change? How do we strike a balance and find harmony within? Does it carry our messages, dreams and hopes? In the exhibition, we will find out how the six artists from Hong Kong and Switzerland Oscar Chan Yik Long, Isaac Chong Wai, Andreas Marti, Kathrin Siegrist + Iva Wili and Angela Su perceive this powerful element of movement and how they represent it in their works in mediums ranging from ink paintings, videos, moving objects, to textile installations.

It evokes a permanent form on the surface, yet when we dive a little deeper into our memories and emotions, the word urges us to reflect on its shifting nature. The definition of ‘homeland’ fluctuates under socio-political pressures which can lead to alienation and discontent, and potential fragmentations in our societies. Postponed since March 2020 due to the pandemic, the second exhibition has transformed into the seventh chapter in the Homeland in Transit series with the German title HEIMAT im WANDEL in which Martin Brauen, cultural anthropologist specialising in Tibet and the Himalayas and curator, and Hong Kong curator Angelika Li attempt to interweave respective perspectives and experiences of Swiss-Tibetan artist Sonam Dolma Brauen, and six Hong Kong artists Hung Fai, Lee Ka Sing, Leung Chi Wo, MAP Office, Lulu Ngie and Wai Pong Yu. Despite many differences, the two places share something in common: the sense of homeland of its inhabitants is constantly being questioned and reinterpreted. How do the artists perceive these transformations and how do they represent it in their art? ​ ​ ​ yishen 34 by Sonam Dolma Wai Pong Yu - A Rhythm of Landscape detail light Book of Waves by MAP Office HUNG Fai 熊輝 VESSEL IV 2019 Ink on Chinese Paper 136 x 69 cm Sonam Dolma, Yishen 28, 2014, 94 x 138 cm MAP Office (Laurent Gutierrez, Valérie Portefaix) HONG KONG IS OUR MUSEUM 2006 White neon mounted on Photo: Nici Jost Vessel by Hung Fai A Rhythm of Landscape detail 1- PY WAI Pong Yu韋邦雨 LAKEDREAM 2 2019 Ballpoint pen on paper 68 x 100 cm Sonam Dolma, Yishen 71 2016 Acrylic on Canvas 34x34 cm Sonam Dolma, Abschied No 3 2017 Acrylic on Canvas 140 x 100 cm WAI Pong Yu韋邦雨 A RHYTHM OF LANDSCAPE 9 2019 Ballpoint pen on paper 57.5 x 68.4 cm My Name is Victoria by Leung Chi Wo LEE Ka Sing 李家昇 THE PART OF HISTORY THAT HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD 2010 Photographic work 40.64 x 50.8 cm Lulu NGIE倪鷺露 RECOGNISING IT 2019 Ink on paper mounted on silk 215 x 95 cm LEE Ka Sing 李家昇 EVERYBODY SAID CAMEL WAS THE FATHER OF GPS 2011 Editions: 4/10 & 5/10 Sonam Dolma, Gone with the wind LEUNG Chi Wo 梁志和 MY NAME IS VICTORIA 2008 Video: HDV, PAL, 21 min. 30 sec.
