Landing on the East

‘Landing on the East’ is the first thematic exhibition by Tang Kwong San and Yuen Nga Chi.

A landing project imagined from the perspective of astronauts, in which the gravitational pull of the moon affects the tides and leads them upon a discovery of a Hong Kong we never know.

With photography, video and installation featuring the deserted borders of Tung Ping Chau and picking up on abandoned objects washed up on the tourist-filled beaches, the exhibition creates an otherworldly visual space through interspersing with objects, islands and the moon.

As the tide rises and falls, the astronaut lifts off again.
