From whence the waves came: An afternoon conversation

May 05, 2018

Antonio Mak Hin-yeung Education Room
Para Site

The conversation will be conducted in Cantonese and Mandarin

In her newly commissioned work From whence the waves came, Law Yuk-mui researches Hong Kong's history and landscape through an approach that is at once sentimental and rigorous. Drawing on this research, she creates an alternative map of the city constructed through the stories of migrants from different time periods, interlaced with events, memories, and imaginary reflections.

Law Yuk-mui, Qu Chang, and researcher Leung Ho Yin will discuss the stories, the method of narration, and the ambiguous definitions of the archives and materials present in the exhibition.

From whence the waves came was a solo exhibition of Law Yuk-mui’s work commissioned by Para Site and curated by Qu Chang on the occasion of Art Basel in March 2018.


Law Yuk-mui graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts. 

Leung Ho Yin is a M.Phil candidate at the History of Chinese Art department at CUHK.

Qu Chang is Associate Curator at Para Site.




Para Site Art Space is financially supported by the Art Development Matching Grants Pilot Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
