Mr Kingsley Ng, Media Artist / Assistant Professor, HKBU Academy of Visual Arts
After the deluge is a homecoming project of artist Kingsley Ng in response to his earlier solo at OzAsia Festival.
Departing from this macroscopic question, after the deluge brings the audience to a monumental facility built innovatively to tackle urban floods. The work transforms this stronghold into a space for contemplation. Following the cyclical footsteps of a drop of water, the work invites the audience to retrace a path of urban development, and probe into what is often unseen.
Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank is normally not open to the public. With great support from the Drainage Services Department, this underground space will unprecedentedly become the locale of a site-specific work of art, and will be open for guided tours during the exhibition period.
Kingsley Ng, the renowned Media Artist will share his passions, creativity experience, works with the ephemeral and intangible, performed in light, sound, space and time.
