Street Tales: This delightful exhibition at Tai Kwun is about celebrating the beauty in everyday life.
Inspired by the practice “Modernologio”, originated in Japan to document and systematically outline street activities, Serendipity in the Street brings together urban observers and artists as they record tales from everyday life in the Central and Sheung Wan neighbourhood. A research team from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University assumed the roles of urban observers in the past few months, strolling through numerous streets and alleys, flyovers, open-air markets, recreational parks and criss-crossing slopes and stairs to discover seemingly mundane people and things.
The tales recorded and exhibited include the stories of a group playing shuttlecock in an alleyway, as well as how curb steps were used in the neighborhood, detailing how these steps served as seats, stretching tools, storage and more.
By systematically presenting everyday life in a research study, the team hopes to invite people to rediscover the spaces around them and appreciate the little details from the mundane.
