City Life II: Hong Kong & Beyond

An exhibition of Hark Yeung’s photographs and Fong So’s paintings was originally planned, before the 2003 SARS (severe acute respiratory sydrome) outbreak, for the Museum of Applied Arts in Frankfurt, Germany, but cancelled after failing to raise the necessary sponsorship.

The exhibition was eventually launched in Hong Kong in 2003 to help the city move beyond its traumatic SARS experience, first at Shatin Town Hall in July and then at Hong Kong Central Library in August. It was an exhibition showcasing Hark Yeung’s two collections of photos, “An Unfinished Journey” and “Greenland 1996”, and Fong So’s two painting projects, “The Young Ones” and “Hong Kong 2003”. The 20 prints he made to illustrate a travelogue, Walking on the Melting Ice by Hark Yeung, were also included (see the portfolio Prints).

城市生活II:香港內外

在2003年的沙士(曾一度被稱為非典型肺炎)疫症爆發之前,德國法蘭克福一個博物館曾計劃展出黑楊的攝影和方蘇的繪畫,其後因未能得到贊助而取消。

這個籌劃中的展覽終於改在香港展出,希望能有助這個城市從疫症中復元過來。展覽於2003年中在兩個展場舉行,7月是沙田大會堂,8月是香港中央圖書館,展出黑楊兩個系列的攝影「無盡的旅程」和「格陵蘭1996」,以及方蘇兩個繪畫系列「下一代」和「香港2003」。同場展出的還有20 張版畫,用作黑楊一本遊歷小說的插圖(見作品集之版畫)。

The Young Ones

This is a series of paintings of children, some in Hong Kong but mostly in other Asian countries, including Myanmar, Mongolia, Cambodia and Indonesia. The painting project started in early 2001 but ended abruptly in early 2003 with the SARS outbreak.
