Coastal Trail Challenge Photo Exhibition
From the second half of 2022 onwards, WMA explores outlying islands in Hong Kong through a series of exhibitions and programmes. While ‘Island(ed)’ juxtaposed the tensions between islands and the city developments with performance and lens-based works, ‘The Call of a Fallen Leaf’ revisited the disappearing islands through field studies and archives. The upcoming 2-week pop-up photo display, is the result of an open call photo contest that we collaborated with Coastal Trail Challenge. We wish to go beyond the artistic perspectives by inviting the public to walk, to gaze and to document the Hong Kong Island with us.
WMA and Coastal Trail Challenge have selected over 20 photographs from the first two weeks of the competition under the theme of ‘Shore’ and ‘Fluidity’, which are showcased to the public in January 2023.
Co-founded and co-organised by Designing Hong Kong, iDiscover and Parks & Trails (TrailWatch), the Hong Kong Coastal Trail Challenge aims to promote urban walkability and access to nature and heritage, and subsequently enhance the awareness of cultural and environmental conservation.
