RE: Tai Kok Tsui-'Hok Hok Zaap Kok'

Date: 2023.04.17 - 2025.09.16

'HOK HOK ZAAP KOK'

 
The public and community art project 'RE:Tai Kok Tsui' collaborates with project partner Rooftop Institute on the 'Hok Hok Zaap Kok'  project. By organizing activities and sharing community knowledge, stories and experiences, it creates a corner full of learning and exchange atmosphere, and strengthens the community's cohesion.
 
3 sessions of Community Museum are designed to be spread out through the project period, the first session is formed by a series of workshops and the programme named 'Hok Hok Zaap Kok' which is led by artists who co-create with residents and local organisations in workshops in March to May 2024 and an exhibition showcase in June 2024, uniting the Tai Kok Tsui community through shared learning.
 
With our Local Collaborator - Mongkok Kai-fong Association Limited Chan Hing Social Service Centre, we hosted 2 sessions of  'Little Poems from Tai Kok Tsui' as the first workshop of the 'Hok Hok Zaap Kok' programme.
 
'Little Poems from Tai Kok Tsui' workshop - Bring your notebook, pen, and a curious mind as you walk through Tai Kok Tsui, weaving stories and gathering inspiration for crafting little poems along the way. Merge your observations, memories, and imagination of Tai Kok Tsui to create these poetic pieces.

'Tai Kok Tsui Street Workout' -Rediscovering Tai Kok Tsui through physical arts

Led by artists, the neighborhood allows residents to use their bodies as guides to explore familiar objects in the community that can be used for physical exercise, and to re-understand and reimagine the pillars and benches on ordinary streets. Combining everyone's creativity and discovery, we jointly develop a unique Tai Kok Tsui street gymnastics set and share it with people in and outside the district.

'Tai Kok Tsui People Collection' -Co-create a Tai Kok Tsui People Collection 

Waiters at Cha Chaan Teng, Street Cleaners, Garage Employees... These are often overlooked individuals who play crucial roles in maintaining the functioning of our community. They go to work day in and day out, accumulating rich stories, experiences, and knowledge. How can these be documented? Participants will explore the Tai Kok Tsui area to seek out different workers and conduct interviews with them. Through simple illustrations, they will create character cards and collaboratively develop a field guide showcasing the diverse workers of Tai Kok Tsui.

'Photogram in Tai Kok Tsui' -Tell the Stories of Tai Kok Tsui with Lights &Shadow

Collect objects from the local community and aim to use them as materials to create a story or envision a narrative that is closely tied to the neighbourhood. By placing the discovered objects onto light-sensitive paper and initiating the "developing" process, the creation of light and shadow artwork will result in the objects being hollowed out, leaving only abstract outlines and shapes behind. Through this technique, stories, imagination, concepts, and other content are reintroduced into the images.
