Law Yuk-mui (Hong Kong)
Victoria East is a multi-channel video installation. Through four perspectives: mountain, sea, coast and wind, the artwork retraces the urban development of Tseung Kwan O under British colonial rule and urban planning policy in a century’s time.
The Installation consists of a set of slide photos and three videos in looping format. With no texts and only situating singular soundsource, the spatial juxtaposition of videos creates a sensational geographical space; the looping format also breaks out the nature of time, allowing audiences to shift their perspective to connect their own interpretation.
