The artwork takes visitors on an audio tour through various parts of Tai Kwun. At each location, the tour will touch on episodes where contagion, disease, and illness have impacted Hong Kong. As this combines walking, breathing, and bodily exercises, the work also engages the audience in how various histories―personal, cultural, pop, and social, alongside mythologies and other religious or spiritual pursuits―are told. The choreography of the tour throughout Tai Kwun thus relates a multilayered story that reflects the artist’s concerns with everyday subtleties in contemporary urban living.

Approx. 30 mins for each session
