Greg Girard:
Hong Kong Made Me

With special guests Gong Gong Gong

This live event features Canadian photographer Greg Girard whose evocative work has captured the transformation of Hong Kong over several decades. Combining Girard’s photography with archival materials from local makers and accompanied by music from experimental rock band Gong Gong Gong, the event is a celebration of the largely overlooked artistry of still photography in film production that has been instrumental for the glamour of 1980s Hong Kong cinema.

The event will be followed by a talk conducted in English.

About the Artists

Greg Girard (b. 1955, Canada) is a world-renowned photographer, famous for his archival records of life in now-demolished Kowloon Walled City.  Girard started his photography career back in the 1970s and spent more than three decades wandering in Asian metropolises including Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. His works have captured the social and physical transformation of these cities. His most notable works include Phantom Shanghai (2007) and City of Darkness Revisited (2014).

Gong Gong Gong (formed 2015, Beijing) is an experimental post-punk band consisting of bassist and vocalist Tom Ng and guitarist Joshua Frank. Drawing inspiration from African blues and techno, amongst other musical genres, the band has captivated audiences worldwide with their eclectic sound filled by repetitive riffs and hypnotic rhythms.  In 2019, Gong Gong Gong released their debut LP titled Phantom Rhythm which received critical acclaim and was recognized as one of the top 10 avant-rock albums of the year by The Wire.
