Slideluck’s first ever show in Hong Kong was met with huge success, injecting a dose of home-grown talent and shared community to the local arts scene. More than 150 guests found their way to Kaylim Studio, tucked away in an industrial warehouse building near the city’s famous harbor for a fantastic night of food and fun.
Despite the ‘potluck’ being a foreign concept, Hong Kongers rose to the occasion and brought a delicious mix of Asian and Western fare – Vietnamese rice rolls, lettuce wraps and larb moo, samosas, curry fish balls, all devoured alongside the town’s tastiest tacos catered by Brickhouse. Kiwi and strawberry jello shots were also a big hit! The most popular dishes, quietly assessed by our top-secret panel of judges, were awarded gizmos and gadgetry sponsored by digital products company Elecom.
After some live music and plenty of ice cold Brooklyn Brewery Lager and East India Pale Ale, everyone settled into comfy bean bags and cushions for the slideshow, which offered different perspectives on life in Hong Kong’s urban jungle as well as glimpses into mainland China, Mongolia and the Philippines.
The energy and enthusiasm of the audience was palpable as each of the 23 artists featured were given huge rounds of applause for their work. The non-profit Anakatira also set up shop with another unique kind of artwork, in the form of pillows and photographs taken by street kids and orphans living in Cebu.
