SEASONAL BY HK FARM
NOVEMBER 2012

HK FARM WAS CREATED BY A DESIGNER, ARCHIVIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER IN MARCH 2012.
THESE CREATIVE BACKGROUNDS HAVE INFLUENCED AN URBAN AGRICULTURA
DIRECTION THAT IS HONEST, UNPREDICTABLE, TANGIBLE AND SELF-SUFFICIENT.

THEIR WORK IS MULTIDISCIPLINARY, ENVIRONMENTALLY-CHARGED AND CONTEXTUAL TO
HONG KONG’S URBAN ENVIRONMENT.  SIMILAR TO THE CROPS GROWN ON THEIR ROOFTOP AND
FERTILISED BY RESOURCES FOUND IN THE CITY, THEY WORK IN A CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENT
- DRAWING THEIR INSPIRATION FROM THE CITY AND THE COMMUNITIES THEY LIVE IN.
 
THIS OCTOBER, HONG KONG GRADUALLY TRANSITIONED FROM ITS HOT AND WET SEASON
INTO ITS COOL AND OPTIMAL PEAK FARMING SEASON. PARALLEL TO SOWING THEIR SEEDS,
HK FARM CAPTURED THIS TRANSITION ON THEIR ROOFTOP FARM IN A SERIES OF
MIXED MEDIA ARTWORKS.
 
SEASONAL BY HK FARM IS AN EXHIBITION THAT DISPLAYS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
THEIR CREATIVE WORK AND THE SEASONS, AND AIMS TO HIGHLIGHT THE IMPORTANCE
IN GROWING LOCALLY AND EATING SEASONALLY.

PLANT LIFE BY HK FARM
MAY 2013

HK FARM WAS CREATED BY A DESIGNER, ARCHIVIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER IN MARCH 2012.
THESE CREATIVE BACKGROUNDS HAVE INFLUENCED AN URBAN AGRICULTURAL
DIRECTION THAT IS HONEST, UNPREDICTABLE, TANGIBLE AND COMMUNITY-BASED.

THEIR WORK IS MULTIDISCIPLINARY, ENVIRONMENTALLY-CHARGED AND CONTEXTUAL
TO HONG KONG’S URBAN ENVIRONMENT. SIMILAR TO THE CROPS GROWN ON THEIR
ROOFTOPS AND FERTILISED BY RESOURCES FOUND IN THE CITY, THEY WORK IN A
CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENT - DRAWING THEIR INSPIRATION FROM THE
CITY AND THE COMMUNITIES THEY LIVE IN.

SINCE MARCH 2012, HK FARM HAS MET SOME VERY INSPIRING PEOPLE ON THEIR JOURNEY.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE SHARED THEIR PASSION FOR FOOD, FOOD LOCALITY, ENVIRONMENTAL
VALUES AND HAVE EVEN BECOME COLLABORATORS WITH CURRENT AND FUTURE PROJECTS.

PLANT FACE IS AN EXHIBITION THAT DISPLAYS CONTEMPORARY PORTRAITS OF THESE
INSPIRING PEOPLE AND PAYS HOMAGE TO GIUSEPPE ARCIMBOLDO’S HEAVILY-TEXTURED
PORTRAIT PAINTINGS IN THE 16TH CENTURY - THAT WERE COMPOSED OF FRUITS,
VEGETABLES AND FLOWERS.

PLANT FACE AND ITS COLLABORATORS AIM TO CREATE FURTHER DISCUSSIONS RELATING
TO FOOD LOCALITY, SELF-SUSTAINABILITY AND URBAN AGRICULTURE IN HONG KONG.
