Chow Yiu Fai's Artist In Residence Journey
“11pm, where are you?”
11pm, where are you?

Already home, or still somewhere outside? However your day has treated you, however far you have travelled to, you leave home and you go home.

I owed my residency work to two departing points. First, it’s the number 11. Second, when I checked in to K11 ARTUS, the person who received me said: welcome to your new home.

I decided to record where I was at 11pm, the trajectory of my home-coming, and all the things that happened to me during that day. Thus, the 11 pieces of words.

And I thought of music – I have been writing lyrics for decades. My home-coming should be accompanied by music. I invited hirsk, and together we created 11 soundtracks with his music and my vocal rendition: this may be how home-coming sounds like.

I made 11 snapshots at the same time; hey, at 11pm, I am here.
