The second edition of the Interstitial Hong Kong exhibition, co-curated by Ivan Valin, Xiaoxuan Lu and Susanne Trumpf, is shown at PMQ Hong Kong, unit S512 until 20.05.2018. For more information on the project, please visit the Interstitial Hong Kong website.

From the exhibition abstract:
Referred to locally as 三角屎坑 (‘saam kok see hang’), or ‘three-cornered shit pit’, Sitting-out Areas are miniature, government-controlled public spaces found throughout Hong Kong. These spaces occupy the interstices of the city’s dense urban fabric and offer a window into the spatial development of the city.
“Interstitial Hong Kong” presents an interactive exhibit showcasing these unique places as a network of physical, cultural, and ecological assets. We invite the public to share their experiences of small-space urbanism and to reimagine the Sitting-out Area’s potential within our city.
