Project Curating Team : Same Same Different Association ∋ Yentl Tong
Collaborating Creatives : Roland Ip + parents and children fighting for the right of abode in Hong Kong; Winki Cho & Michael Wong + migrant domestic workers; v-artivist + mainland parents of HK-born children
‘Counting the Days' attempts to connect various groups of folks whom, due to different circumstances, find themselves in a state of suspension in borderlands. In creative workshops, story-sharing and discussions, these folks co-create with artists and project team in different visual media that organise and present their stories of lived (and learned) experiences. In these works, vis-à-vis different cultural, social, and political contexts and backgrounds, they attempt to investigate the present — the here and now — which we all share, and within which, co-exist. The exhibition reveals the living status of different folks who have left home, settled in Hong Kong, and returned home, offering the audience textured glimpses into their everyday moment and emotion in order to find a path towards each other.

‘exodus of nowhere' trilogy - Film Screening
Capital globalisation adores the free global flows and connections, declaring that we are living in a world without borders. However, the so-called 'free flow' only belongs to capital agglomeration, the flow is far less easy and free for grassroots. The flow for grassroots always comes along with numerous barriers and casualties. Ethnic conflicts have led to infinite tragedy in history. Unfortunately, tragedies seem to have repeated themselves, over and over again. Can this spell be ever broken? The three people who made this film are trying to find a trace, through looking into small family histories and grand narration of human migration.
