This article is a review of the show Hong Kong in Poor Images (2020.01.12-02.16) presented at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art, in partnership with Yale-China Association.

Linda Lai's Voices Seen, Images Haard was one of 6 video works from Hong Kong show in the event.

"The videos from artists Linda Chiu-han Lai and Kalen Wing Ki Lee, meanwhile, find themselves in a space between Tang and Law, as the explore the limits of the power of Hong Kong’s government and the precarious way that the city is constantly growing at the cost of preserving its history. Both of their fragmented series images suggest a place that is hurtling into the future, pushed by the powerful forces of development and commerce. Hong Kong’s residents, willingly or not, are being pushed as well. Tensions appear within and without. And as the pieces in this fascinating exhibit suggest, the city remains in a deeper way ungraspable, even to the people who live there." (final paragraph)
