The Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture Hong Kong 2019 is held in two cities, Shenzhen and Hong Kong simultaneously with the theme on architecture and urbanism. It aims to create a platform to exchange the ideas on placemaking between the public and the artists, architects and designers. In the Shenzhen exhibition that has been launched since December 2019, the architects Allan Au, Wyan Yeung, Dylan Kwok, Quad Studio and Dimension Plus from Hong Kong re-interpret the unique story about Hong Kong's daily life in different art forms under the theme "Art by Architecture".
Inspired by seesaw in the childhood, See-Saw-Scene created by Allan Au and Wyan Yeung invites visitors to explore the balance with body movement in both auditory and somatosensory senses. The swinging movement triggers the urban sound devices enabling visitors to revisit their precious memories and experience a scene from daily life in Hong Kong. 🙊🙈🙉 created by Dylan Kwok is a set of enjoyable, playful and relaxing furniture transformed from a public bench project. Peppered with humour and fun, his work demonstrates how people are addicted to mobile devices and how technology blurs the distinction between together and alone. ONEIROPHERENIA – The Future Kaleidoscope
created by Wai Tang from Quad Studio and Keith Lam from the new media arts creative group, Dimension Plus, invites visitors entering into the world of amazing eye-popping illusions by twisting unique Hong Kong skyline into a colourful kaleidoscope, as if people feel lost when gazing at the scenes and peer into the mind of an android.
