Although I live in England, it so happened that I was in Hong Kong during the Tiananmen Square incident and because of my profession I got to know the Hong Kong media including the left wing journalists. I was shown some photos by an editor of a left wing magazine of the happenings in the square that he would not publish, but the horrible sight affected him. I was deeply shocked.  I was also moved by the reaction of Hong Kong people to this incident. Knowing that some of them would emigrate to the UK before the hand-over. I staged project Theme Hong Kong to promote greater understanding between the two peoples. Apart from creative performing programmes I mounted relevant displays at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Shaw Theatre foyers, and at the Commonwealth Institute and Redbridge Library. These are some of the images of the venues and the displays. I will gradually upload more as there are quite a lot of  mainly photographic displays and I am still categorising them.

我僑居英國,但六四事件時剛好在香港,因從事創作和演藝而認識香港媒體,包括左派的,亦因此讓我看到一些在當時當地的照片,而最令我震驚的照片是一左傾雜誌編輯讓我看的,他不會發表這些照片,但他見到後卻令他覺得很不忍。我亦看到了香港人對這事件的反應,知道有些香港人將會在九一前後移民外地,包括英國,我因此在英國和香港演出《香港做主題》,做點溝通港、英文藝的工作,這包括一系列的創作和演出,和展覽與此相關的很多圖片,仍在整理中,將陸續展出。
