Exhibition of Community Creations
Tue - Fri 13:00-19:00
Sat - Sun 11:00 - 19:00
Day after day, new coastlines of Macao lay over the disappearing ones where the edges of the land and the sea constantly redefines one another, and the previous coastlines may only reappear when a storm surge strikes.
A coastline means more than this fluid edge around our reclaimed land; its existence encapsulates the lives, stories, industries, ecosystems, and everything which constantly affect and build up the connections and dynamics among the land, the sea and us.
To explore these dynamics, we hope to understand the stories of the people living between the sea and the land, and hosted a few workshops to invite citizens and volunteers to share their personal histories and thoughts with us. This exhibition shows our findings from the workshop, embodied in the works co-created by the workshop participants.
Through this exhibition, we invite you to experience with us the invisible coastlines from different time and space and imagine coastal lives from different eras. We also invite you to sense, explore, and relive the beauty of this coastal city by putting down your thoughts or memories about invisible coastlines on the “Community Timeline” in the venue and share with us your connections with the sea.
