“hong kong: corner houses”
The Upper Station Gallery is located on the incline of a steep hill. Further up the hill is Blake Gardens, a park that begins with a height of stairs, winds over slopes, and overlooks neighboring rooftops. My aesthetic appreciation for art is very underdeveloped and essentially resides in instinctual pleasure, so: the coloring, the quality of soft clarity, and the rows and rows of windows, stacked rectangles, sometimes tinted, often dirty, embodying and exposing a facade filled with lines, symmetry, shapes, glass plates.
I very much wanted to buy the book but wouldn’t allow myself to make two purchases, and ultimately I decided on a book with a canvas cover about Shek Kip Mei; it was like a scrapbook, with historical facts and facsimiles of documents.
