Leung Chi Wo made a research project for 6 months with a group of students for names of Hong Kong artists whom we are not familiar with. They randomly browsed through exhibition catalogues and invitation cards in the Arts Centre, libraries and art archives. Then they drafted a list of names in hundreds and filtered it with internet search for those who were rarely heard in the last decade. Leung brought this shortlist to several senior artists and curators for their memories of names in it and those who remain in their heart, which have become the basis for 3 new works for this project.
