Échos de la cité cachée: dévoiler l’énigme de la ville fortifiée de Kowloon à Hong Kong

15 MAI 2024 À 18:30

The conference will be held by Lok Kan Cheung, an artist and co-organizer of CUBE, the Hong Kong Film Festival in Paris. With Kenneth Kin-wai Yeung, co-organizer of CUBE.

The enclave, now demolished, of the Kowloon Walled City has fueled numerous fantasies. Using testimonies, video excerpts, and photographs, the artist Lok Kan delves into the urban and social history of this lawless zone. The Kowloon Walled City, a famous urban enclave for its status as an "ungoverned city" where official laws did not fully apply due to its ambiguous legal status, is the birthplace of Lok Kan Cheung, an artist from Hong Kong and fourth-generation of this city. Inspired by her family heritage and the tumultuous history of the city, Lok Kan explores her cultural identity through a variety of artistic media. Her work interrogates collective memory and urban identity, offering a unique perspective on life in this legendary city, where chaos and diversity were omnipresent. Her participation in a conference on the Kowloon Walled City sheds valuable light on the challenges and complexities of this unique urban enclave in Hong Kong's history.
