Self-Portraits – Unmasking Hong Kong refugees : A Refugee Photo Exhibition
About exhibition (有關展覽 )
They dare not expose themselves to avoid being jeopardised. They hide themselves beneath a self-painted mask, with only colours and symbols to share their stories and deepest feelings. They were forced to depart from the home they were familiar with, to leave their close relatives, and to undergo tragic journeys to get here. What forces them to endure throughout their way is not the scenery at their destinations, but a desperate wish to settle down in a safe place.
Over the past ten years, SoCO has come across people of persistence and courage through our work with refugees. Living in turbulent countries rife with continuous warfare, they resist authoritarianism and violence armed with only their bare hands, stubbornly vowing to never compromise their values. However, persecution has forced them to flee from their homes and adopt an unstable and unsustainable lifestyle. In this exhibition Self-portraits, through multimedia, including photography, installations, animations and documentaries, we hope to unmask these vivid lives.
