This video is produced in conjunction with the exhibition 'CATTLE - Can All the Tenants Laugh Efficiently' held at Artist Commune, Hong Kong from March to April 2005. It introduces the history of Cattle Depot Artist Village and the concept of the exhibition, which is aimed at generating discussion about the relationship between the local economy and visual art. The latter part of the video features interviews with the tenants of Cattle Depot (and the participants of the exhibition) who voice their views about the village, which has not lived up to expectations.

In Chinese and some English, no subtitles provided. Published by Artist Commune.
