Wei Leng Tay—The Other Shore
Young Mainland Chinese are moving to Hong Kong from all over China, leaving their homes because of family interests or in search of better education and career prospects. Such migrants find themselves in majority Chinese yet increasingly tense environments, often confronting entrenched ideas regarding ‘Mainlanders’. While often presented as a single group, the photographic portraits and interviews in ‘The Other Shore’ reveal individual lives, with diverse aspirations and attitudes towards Hong Kong. ‘The Other Shore’ asks how one’s sense of self is entwined with national identity, and how a host environment affects our outlook and everyday lives.
Wei Leng Tay
Based in Singapore and Hong Kong, Wei Leng Tay’s work considers how socio-economics, history, family and the state intersect with notions of displacement and self-identity. Tay builds a relationship with her subjects through extensive interviews, some of which are recorded and presented as transcripts or audio installations with her photographs. In 2015, Tay was the recipient of the Poynter Fellowship at the Yale School of Art. Tay’s work has been exhibited widely in Asia and internationally, including National University of Singapore Museum, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
