Time & Location

Nov 18, 2023, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Cheung Chau Sourdough, G, F, No, 12 Cheung Chun Rd, Cheung Chau, Hong Kong

About the event

The lifestyle of islanders seems varied from that of citizens. People from outside the island seek tranquility on the small island, where a stretch of sea separates it from another ideal life. Whether native islanders born and raised here or new islanders who have moved from elsewhere, everyone has their own story. We hope to explore the magic of the small island together, coming together to share our ideal island nation.

The project also include a half-month (11/11 - 15/12) satellite exhibition featuring Cheung Chau flower board at various spots on the island, showcasing the stories of 9 islanders as well as the ideal ways of life they found.

About the artists:

Flora Yiu: I am an art administrator who is experienced in curating cultural events. I have a natural curiosity for people and a penchant for conversations. I particularly cherish the exchange between individuals. In recent years, some friends have moved to Cheung Chau, and I began to explore the stories surrounding the island and its inhabitants. In their words, there exists a tangible but indistinct notion of a happy life.  Instagram: @geeleegoo1oo  

Lorraine Li: is a Cheung Chau-er who engages in placemaking and community art curation. She shares her everyday observations on the island to her offshore communities on her Instagram page @cia.by.the.sea
