The Lead | Habourfront of Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter | 5/ 6- 4/ 7/ 2021

In Chinese gardens, mountains and rocks are cornerstone components breathing life into the landscapes.

As the lead-in of the fire dragon imagery of this exhibition, the #ddHK-shaped installation The Lead stands like the artificial mountains and rocks in a Chinese garden pond. It heralds the diverse cultures and functions of the new harbourfront space. The dragon head element resonates with the ending ritual of the Tai Hang fire dragon dance, in which the dragon prop is sent into the sea at the typhoon shelter. Meticulously made by the Tai Hang Residents' Welfare Association using chamber bitter and entirely covered by burning incense sticks, it embodies the wishes for our homes and echoes with the commissioned work River of Light at the end of ‘transFORM’.

Following The Lead is a series of 'dragon pearls' scattered along the harbourfront, forming an image of a kindled fire dragon stretching out.
