Fotan Chun Yeung Estate Quarantine Centre Artist Residency Program 2020
Location: Fotan, Chun Yeung Estate
I am Whampoa Mayor. Today is 2020, April 18th. After I got off work, my colleagues and I went to Tsim Sha Tsui to have a farewell dinner to celebrate the departure of one of our colleagues. We decided to treat ourselves with Japanese delicacies, and went to Jing Saju Izakaya. Upon entering, the waiter used an infrared detector to check my temperature. Fuck, 38 °C. I froze up and wondered if this will be the end of me, my colleagues were freaking out.
I am Whampoa Mayor. Today is 2020, April 19th. I was arranged to enter the quarantine camp in a government re-appropriated quarantine camp in Chun Yeung Estate, Fotan. The site was originally a newly built public housing estate. This is the beginning of my 14 day artist residency program.
