A Day on Lo Lai Lai’s Farm

Multimedia Jun 2020

Inspired by the local land movement, Hong Kong artist Lo Lai Lai Natalie first started farming at Sangwoodgoon, a collective in Yuen Long, in 2011. She started documenting crop growth and the curious happenings in the field, eventually shifting to making video art, such as the series Slow-so TV (2015– ), based on television programs. As major pro-democracy movements emerged in both 2014 and 2019, Lo began to reconsider the idea of protest and to see her individual practice of farming and art-making as an independent form of resistance, which was explored in her latest solo exhibition “Give no words but mum,” at Tomorrow Maybe, Hong Kong, this year. In late spring, ArtAsiaPacific assistant editor Pamela Wong visited Sangwoodgoon and Lo’s studio to learn about the intertwining scenes of local agriculture and video art in Hong Kong.
