One Wandered, One Wondered.

The first Sunday marked our busiest day here since arriving, we had nearly 1,000 visitors stepping through to see “Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice”. During my internship at the Hong Kong Pavilion which started in September, I photographed countless visitors who saunter through our wooden-door entrance. The photographs captured them in candid freeze-frames and I sketched those who made an indelible impression on me.

Stakeholders: Exhibition staff in Venice

The title of this year’s Hong Kong exhibition at the 58th Venice Biennale is “Stakeholders: Hong Kong in Venice,” through which artist Shirley Tse proposes a world-view where everyone is a stakeholder. Here, I would like to introduce some of the stakeholders of the Venice Biennale–the Biennale exhibition staff. These are the indispensable but unacknowledged individuals who spend the most time at the exhibitions, who take care of the artworks and venues, greet and aid dazed and confused visitors, and make sure the show go on (or not) under whatever circumstances.

(May) We All Live in Interesting Times

“May You Live in Interesting Times,” the title of the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale, is said to be an ancient Chinese curse, though none of the Chinese here at the Biennale, at least those I have met, seem to have any inkling where this comes from.

Celebrate like a Venetian!

Traveling in Venice during its annual Carnival definitely has all the captivating charm, but be prepared to jam in the narrow streets and squares in the week-long events
