Home is not only a work of visual art. It is a creative process that engaged the community. A total of 102 To Kwa Wan residents generously shared personal items to illustrate their ideas of “home”. Each coming with a story, these seemingly ordinary objects are all loaded with fond memories and endearing sentiments.
Amidst changes in To Kwa Wan, Home encapsulates the visual imagery of individuals, families and a community in a conceptual framework. Like a time capsule, framed within floorplans of old tenement buildings, it preserves the residents’ “home”.
