tide.hong kong : in transit is based on sensations of the sights and soundscapes of Victoria Harbour. The seashore platform in Whampoa is punctuated by holes which produce harmonic tones that shift with the tides. Lee’s works of art are derived from the intersection between installation and performance, and draw on a practice of listening to the world. In this site-and-time specific performance, the composite of the sound-making objects and human voices narrates subtle changes in environment .
This performance will be followed by “The Metamorphosis of Hung Hom,” a tour led by Walk In Hong Kong 活現香港. Once a centre of heavy industry, the neighbourhood has in recent years transformed into a mixed residential and commercial area. This tour will survey the old streets and stories of Hung Hom. The walking route will include cinemas, temples, factories and piers that form part of the history of Hong Kong.
Born in Hong Kong, Fiona Lee obtained her Bachelor of Arts majoring in Critical Intermedia Laboratory from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. Her works of art are derived from the intersection between installation and performance. Her recent art practices and inspirations have come from the feeling of particular moments in her daily routine, which she explores as if it were a world of adventure. Her recent work focuses on the relationship between sound frequencies and electromagnetic fields.

The debut performance of the sound-playing trio Namiji
In the same fleeting moment with the engaging participants, the objects are gradually rising and being dropped rapidly in order to create the bouncing ripples. Namiji makes use of those movements to create the distance among expectations, as a result to enhance the vertical circulations within the stair by manipulating the sound and the air. The stair looks like a wiggling vertical tunnel, so as to find the connections between vertical movements and horizontal rotations. The trio performs between well-planned arrangement and improvisation, in which they are looking for the echoes assembled by the interactions between people & objects. Those echoes developed as if they are driving a certain kind of state of purity.
Samson Cheung, Fiona Lee & Wong Fuk Kuen
Namiji is formed by Samson Cheung, Fiona Lee and Wong Fuk Kuen. The fundamental initiation of forming the group is inspired by the trio’s common ground in their spatial sensibility. They search and discover the intangible and seemingly non-existenting aesthetics with certain distance and speed, in between here and there. Namiji is where those abstract concepts being practised and executed in form of performance, installation, field recording and journal about their senses towards different spaces, based on their fundamental initiation. Namiji could be a hub for practising, in round shape.

it was 4pm , when i was leaving home and planned to go to visit Art Basel or the performance in empty gallery.
On the way to Mtr, I decided to go for the performance in empty gallery instend of visiting Art Basel.
During the days in March, it was a blossom of art events in Hong Kong because of Art Basel in Wanchai. I felt a bit dizzy during that period .
When I was going to the bus stop for the transit, I was passing by a huge group of protester near to the sogo apartment store. They draw my whole attention and make me changed my mind to join the walk as well.
I didn’t voice any slogan during the protest. I just walked slowly as I can at the last part of the queue. And I found that there was a woman who have the same intention as me to walk slowly.We have several moments that we walk side by side and I felt we have the same tempo . We didnt talk to each other but I felt that we quite enjoy the slow tempo. There are few times that the police use the louder speaker to warn us to walk faster. The male police in the car drive after me,who keep voice out “the lady with blue muslin dress and a brown color bag, yes! that’s you! You are the obstacle of the bus behind you ” OF course ! I don’t walk fast by their command as i felt that i m in the state of walking slow.However, the police tried to drive closly to us . One male police warn me and said”that’s a car, watch out!”, but i replied him”I m Human , watch out!”
I was quite enjoy the walk on the car road slowly and feeling the atmosphere in the city. It just like a soundwalk as I helded before. I was thinking about what if I could held a sound walk during the protest in the context of Art Basel. To invite those foreign buyers, curators etc etc to have a soundwalk in this moody atmosphere. I imagined the sound of high-heel shoes mixed with the voice of protest and the voice of the police warning.
After an hour, the woman talked to me. She asked me to be careful as the policeman would trick as the protest didnt apply for notification of public meeting. At that moment, the police car driven beyond us and forced us to walk on the pavement, and control the tempo of our walk. I walked a bit faster and catch up the last queue.
However, I cannot enjoy the tempo as they controlled, then I leave the queue and heading to ACO.
Slow is a sin in this fast responds city and era.
