Sara Wong’s artwork engages the urban and social conditions in Hong Kong. Perhaps drawing inspiration from the Situationists, Wong creates psychogeographies of her city in performative interventions into map-making. For Local Orientation, the artist drifted through Hong Kong, following illogical routes and filming her journey, in effect documenting urban living, sights, and the passage of time. Her aimless path resists the purposeful action of most city life. “When I don’t look at a map, but instead build my own ‘map’ in my head, and then I check an actual map and see the discrepancy between where I thought I was and where I really am, that triggers something in me,” Wong has said. Though the piece dates to 1998, Wong returned to it in 2002 and 2013, highlighting changes in Hong Kong. The piece exemplifies her larger project of reckoning with the specificity of a place and how a person intersects with it.
