“I won’t suicide” declarations, Hong Kong, 2019 – Documentation and Art Exhibition Day 9

September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

“I will not commit suicide, because I have to wait until the day the enemy falls.”

 

The exhibition contains “I won’t suicide” declarations from 2019 Hong Kong protests, in the format of written documents and videos. While each letter reveals the determination of the writer to protect his/her hometown, it also is an indicator of how oppressive and brutal the governing body was. The video documentation of the arrested protesters declaring such at the protesting sites, will also help audience members to have a more realistic understanding of Hong Kong protesters’ situations in 2019. Besides the documentation, we have invited contemporary artists and art groups from Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Canada. Their work will respond to the exhibition title in mixed media formats, and will help nurture and develop the future visions of Hong Kong, based on the unforgettable memories from the past.

 

At the same time, we are launching our supporting platform – Athena’s Army. This platform provides 8 services and aims to help settling Hong Kong protestors who are in exile to the UK. Quite a number of them are seeking asylum, having no identity and are full of worries on accommodations, food and other necessities. Public can participate by registering as host families, free ride volunteers, and column subscribers on our platform.

 

Together, let us stay alive. Let us stay strong.
