At the scenic and historic Hakka village Chuen Lung, artist Ki Wong will be leading participants through an instrospective exercise of recognising one’s intent in their gaze.

Back in 2020, when the concept of Koon Man Space was still developing, HKIPF, together with Ki Wong and Pak Chai, had already began an artists-in-residence in Chuen Lung. Ki’s observation of the environment was crucial nutrients for her artistic creation. In this Photography Salon session, Ki will encourage the participants to be guided by their very own curiosity, and practice the intent in their gaze; recognise what is being observed, and how – from which, a story may be told.
