Architect and artist Justin Hui has spent more than a year documenting the changing landscape of Hong Kong’s Northern frontier. The region is currently at the focus of immense change with the Hong Kong government’s plan to develop land near the Shenzhen border into a “Northern Metropolis”.
In his talk, Justin will share his perspectives from the ground to provide insights of the region and the nature of Hong Kong’s land development. He will share photographs and anecdotes of villages being demolished, new infrastructure under construction, forgotten histories and the Shenzhen skyline, the agrarian nature of the land that eroded by urban development, and even stories of his participation in Hakka traditions by villagers he’s met along the way. His sharing re-examines our understanding of Hong Kong in relationship to the North and our relationship with land.
