Organized by the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Graduates and Students and supported by Albergue SCM and Macau Heritage Ambassadors Association, What Are We Waiting For installation is an exhibition at Albergue SCM from June 18 to June 23, 2021. Through What Are We Waiting For is an interactive installation which appears to be a washing machine, participants can experience a “washing procedure” about time with people from Hong Kong and Japan through video clip and online communication software. By looking into the installation, they have the right to peep, or the right to look directly, experiencing the past and the present.
In this project, the washing machines are divorced from such original and ordinary context and value and re-presented with a new purpose. Those who look into the “washing machines” would not be waiting for their washings to be done. Instead, they would face part of the creators’ current situations of a “new normal” during Covid-19 through music and kaleidoscopic images manipulated by mirrors and video work. In the machine, the waiting time of the washing machines is replaced by the contemplation time for the audience, and expectation and anxiety in them and self-reflection through a new “washing machines” may gradually become more noticeable.
The installation is created by Kenneth, Cheong Wai Kit (installation curator), Zoe, Wong Yan Tung, Frances, Leong Yuen Tung, Yoyo, Yau Yau Yin, Angel, Chiu Oi Ying, Clara, HO Sze Wing, Ayami Oki-Siekierczak with special thanks to Sogo Akiyoshi.
