"New Hong Kong Legends" Artist Guided Visit 「新香港傳說」藝術家導賞 by Ho Ka Ho 何家豪

About this event

New Hong Kong Legends

What I am capturing is the ‘remnants’ of Hong Kong’s urban legends.

Urban legends may have been told by a ‘friend of a friend’ before they are passed on throughout society. What is more fascinating and important than the truth, or lack thereof, behind them is the “that-has-been” nature of their circulation, the act of which being a validation of their existence. Or perhaps what we really should be asking is why do these urban legends propagate? And what does their existence reflect on the state and psychology of society?

新香港傳說

我拍攝的是,香港都市傳說的「遺蹟」。

都市傳說,由「朋友的朋友」說起,再流傳至整個社會。最有趣及重要的,並非事件的真偽,而是「此曾在」(That-has-been) 的本質 ── 其流傳行為本身就是無可置疑地存在。或許更該反問的是:為何傳說會流傳?其承載著怎樣的社會背景及大眾心理?
