Excavation

The work is a collaboration between Kingsley Ng, Syren Johnstone and Daniel Patzold, for the Hong Kong Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture. It stages an archeological dig where an imagined future of the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade is partially unearthed. By taping off a large section of land and appropriating the visual cues of an excavation site — typed signage, maps, inventory lists, nominal evidence of a now buried marketplace, as well as a shed belonging to a mysterious Uncle Hung — the artists create a parallel spatio-temporal experience that recasts the entire Biennale site as a ruin-in-progress.
