City Of Darkness: Walled City of Kowloon Exhibition @ Blue Lotus Gallery
Blue Lotus Gallery is proud to present ‘City of Darkness’: an exhibition exploring the old and long gone Walled City of Kowloon as photographed by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot. This influential body of work, which to date sold over 25,000 book copies, will be on view in a gallery setting for the first time since first published. For nearly 50 years, the extraordinary community of Kowloon Walled City cut a dark presence in the heart of Hong Kong. Yet without legislation and with little regard for basic services, planning and regulations or building standards, the city not only survived, it positively thrived. But how could such a place exist in a modern metropolis without administrative oversight, ‘triply neglected’ by the British, Chinese and Hong Kong governments? Who would choose to live there? And why?

The Everyday Signs in SSP Exhibition @ foreforehead
Street sign is well known as a significant communication channel in Sham Shui Po. Since most of the residents in the area are grassroots and elderlies, who seldom use internet and could not afford agency fees. Hence, street signs become their source of information, as well as ways of communications. Nowadays, digital advisement has become the major tool for information dissemination. foreforehead wishes the exhibition and programmes of ‘Everyday Sign in SSP’ could show the lifestyle of Sham Shui Po, in a way that people have never come across and think about.
