The exhibition runs from 25 to 31 January at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The winning design will be announced in February.

Highlight Event
The Fringe Club -【PASSENGERS' ANECDOTES】From the Edge of Central Journeying through the Forgotten
A night at the turn of autumn, few artists convened in Central and tried walking up and up in pursuit of the land of unknown.
If it were a boat, where would it have led us to? Through observing, documenting and experiencing their residence, three artists – Chan Cho Kiu, Jess Lau Ching Wa, and Yip Kai Chun – refresh their understanding of and feelings for the Fringe Club, as well as its surroundings and histories. The journey they have embarked on inspires different series of installation works, illustrating these sites and scenes then and now.
Chan Cho Kiu is fond of getting lost. For months, she has been observing the vitality and industry roaming up and down the slopes in Central. Jess Lau Ching Wa focuses on the memories of urban dwellers and attempts to re-create what was once owned and is now lost. Yip Kai Chun traces and unravels the changes and feelings in a centenarian’s life. Placed all over the boat are objects, texts, sounds, images that seek to pause passersby on their way.
Docked on the edge of Central, the passenger freighter used to transport ice, milk and meat and was home for its workers. Three artists are invited to have a 5-month residence at the venue. Through their lens and senses, they integrate their works with the surroundings to unearth the forgotten, inspire curiosity and build connections.
