Penjing

The mountainscape of the Hong Kong island, 240 meters above sea level, is cast as a floating sheet of bronze, framed in glass.

This land was reserved exclusively for the non-Chinese, so as to assure, according to Government records, “that a healthy place of residence may be preserved for all those who are accustomed to a temperate climate and to whom life in the tropics presents the disadvantage of an unnatural environment.” (Peak Reservation ordinance, 1904-1946)

With charismatic accuracy, the work calls for an objective look into the progressive erosion of the natural landscape, as promulgated by the steady advancement of the cityscape.
