The Popo-Post Art Group cordially invites you to the official launch of their first publication project, the Real Estate Zine: Bedtime Story. RSZB takes the bed as a unit of measure, showing how small a saleable lot can be scaled down and yet how far the human imagination can go. The apartment the size of a bed is presented as a model home, with its related publication offering in-depth analysis on sleeping positions, bedtime literature reviews, and more practical how-tos such as tips for falling asleep and having sweet dreams. The launch will take on the form of a slumber party and guests are encouraged to bring their own pillows to rest their heads on. RSZB compiles works that were earlier shown in an exhibition of the same name at Front/SiDE Gallery, JCCAC in April 2019. The works were shown in a display case the size of a bed. The zine includes contributions from Calvin Chu, Chung Wing Shan, Cheng Yuen Ling, Hui Tsz Ho, Ma Wik (Joyce Ma), Lam Kwok Yam, Lam Ka Man, Ronald Kwong, and Wong Chun Kit.
This event will be conducted in Cantonese and English.
Live events take place on Friday evenings and include presentations by those working in sound publishing, performative readings, and low-fi zine production.
Formed in 2018, the Popo-Post Art Group take WhatsApp as their HQ, denying the physical comfort of and desire for a studio. In response to Hong Kong’s always burgeoning financial sector, they use idle and underrated spaces. They mix high-quality cultural cement and use it to fill up the slivers and gaps in this city. Their first exhibition titled Queen Mother Crossing Time and Border was held throughout the districts of Yau Tsim Mong, Sham Shui Po, and Kwai Tsing. The works were shown in monthly rental cubic displays in malls such as the Argyle Centre, Apple Mall/Dragon Centre, and Magic Box. Don’t tell your mama, the Popo-Post Art Group irons the earth.
