Rhythmic LANE

Napp Studio & Architects, Fragrant Village

Similar to how the school serves as a meeting place for people from different villages, sound and symbol bear the same ability to unite people of different backgrounds and origins. In Leung Shuen Wan, various kinds of sound serve as signals, such as the sound indicating the departure for fishing and the sound of school bell calling people together. Each sound bears a particular rhythm that both students and villagers will find familiar. How could we bring in sound as part of the art installation experience that links to a collective memory of the community?

After many years, the school playground is now abandoned. Nature has begun to reclaim the space, with grasses sprouting from the cracks. They bear witness to the passage of time and the changes in the local area. How do we inhabit with growth in nature? Co-create but also co-exist as we once again reshape the landscape of the site?

Fragrant Village
Founded by village arts artist Sze Ka Yan in 2016 and mainly focuses on curating music and art projects about villages in Hong Kong inspired by the land and the villagers, aiming to invite the public to enter these villages and experience their history, culture, and ecology. Fragrant Village curated the “Village School Anthem Project” exhibition from 2021-2023 by collecting school songs of village schools and researching village school history, which reflects the context of Hong Kong’s urban development, to preserve the little-known community history and use village school songs as the key to open the community and share art.
