After the deluge is a homecoming project of artist Kingsley Ng in response to his earlier solo at OzAsia Festival: in close proximity to the desert, Adelaide is among the driest regions in Australia; on the other side of the Earth, Hong Kong is also affected by climate change and heavy rains are becoming more and more frequent. Between these two poles of water imbalance, how do we reflect on the disequilibrium triggered by modern development?

Departing from this macroscopic question, after the deluge brings the audience to a monumental facility built innovatively to tackle urban floods. The work transforms this stronghold into a space for contemplation. Following the cyclical footsteps of a drop of water, the work invites the audience to retrace a path of urban development, and probe into what is often unseen.

Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank is normally not open to the public. With great support from the Drainage Services Department, this underground space will unprecedentedly become the locale of a site-specific work of art, and will be open for guided tours during the exhibition period.
