Curated by: EmptySCape
Supported by: Hong Kong Urban Laboratory, Cultural Collective and Ta Kwu Ling/Ping Che alliance for ‘saving our home’
This event is supported and funded by: the Hong Kong Arts Development Council
Details: The Ping Yeung Public School situated at the edge of Hong Kong, in Northeast New Territories. Not many would know that such a vast, absorbing and ideal primary school campus exists in Hong Kong. Although it has been abandoned since 2007 when the school terminated after more than 50 years of education, the campus continues to be a space connecting all alumni and the villagers around Ping Che. Indeed, the existence of the derelict campus is a microcosm of the broader rural landscapes and the values embodied in these places: alternative models and conceptions of ‘development’, a kind of humanism that respect our co-evolution with the natural world and a deep sense of place. You are cordially invited to the Ping Che Village School Art Festival, to experience a campus filled with art and all the great values embodied in it.
