How do interactive video installation and web-based interactive re-storytelling present the diverse experiences and identities of Hong Kong older women in response to the modernization of Hong Kong economy and society between 1950s and 2010s? In this video forum, the directors Dr. Kimburley Choi and Mr. Wong Fei Pang will reflect on their research and creation process of recounting the older women’s life experiences and subjective evaluations in contemporary Hong Kong. They will discuss the performative nature of oral storytelling in the installation, and how it visualises selfhood as a rhizomatic story with different voices, knowledge as situated and “truths” as multiple and partial. It aims to shed light on social research as arts-based narrative inquiry.
The forum will be held at Floating Projects on 10 December 2022 (Saturday) at 3:30-5:30 p.m. The event will be moderated by Dr. Linda Lai and conducted in Cantonese. Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis. The installation will be on view at Floating Projects from 3 to 19 December 2022.
