Chinese medicine and dried seafood shops give Sheung Wan a distinctive character that resonates with attributes of the archive – as sites where intangible history is passed on through physical objects. The Life Archive project team documents artefacts from the neighbourhood and pairs them with items from AAA’s collection. The artist then leads tours to re-imagine Sheung Wan as an alternative archive..
