Edy Fung

Feelings of past and present are both compressed through the epidemic events via the perpetuated timeless platform of the virtual environment. The artist realised the predictability of the consistency of her reaction to the two events 17 years apart. In Diaries. Monuments. Memory. Documentation. Event. Pandemic. Archive. Digital identity. Encoding. Decoding. Commemoration. Deja-vu. Always-already. Burying shame. Treehole. Winter counts. Edy Fung revisits her old online diaries written from the time during school closure after the 2003 SARS-CoV-1 outbreak in Hong Kong, which were rediscovered again through the ‘Wayback Machine’ while going through lockdown after the 2020 SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. A selection of 14 entries – reflecting the mandatory period of isolation, is translated into a site-specific installation inspired by winter counts. Playing with expressions in denotations and connotations, a series of instagram posts on the artist’s reflection on this year’s new normal will be published from 1 to 14 October 2020, as the virtual aspect parallel to the physical representation. 

This project is in partnership with St Augustine’s Heritage Site and is kindly funded by Derry City & Strabane District Council, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and The Ireland Funds.
