Interview with Leung Poshan Anthony by Leung Chiwo Warren

Leung Poshan Anthony talks about how her studies of Cantonese Opera in Hon Fung Cantonese Opera from Primary 3 to junior high school years, and her exposure to ceramics, philosophy, and general knowledge during her formative years as a student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong have had far-reaching influences on her later career in art (00:00–19:01). Later on, Leung discusses working for the 20 Beans + a Box project, which encompassed performance art, installation art, theatrical space, and thinking through how these three aspects work together (19:02–27:58). After graduating from university, Leung not only became more focused on the relationship between art and society, but also understood the cross-media character of her own works. As the interview progresses, she elaborates on her recent creative ideas, and the relationship among personal experiences, political and social issues, as well as art media (27:58–57:34). Leung continues to share her views on the development of Hong Kong art. She also finds Zuni Icosahedron’s move to deconstruct the establishment, and its bold stance towards embracing the establishment, commendable. She also thinks that it is a viable way for Hong Kong art to develop (59:55–01:03:00). Towards the end of the interview, Leung uses her experiences from participating in overseas exhibitions and exchanges to comment further on the future of Hong Kong artists (01:07:25–01:15:10).
