Maybe Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back
…… Don’t you ever ask them whyWe walked to the little park that I took a rest a while ago, in front of us was Kai Kee. The boy shook his head and said, “no, no, it should be Fat something Mahjong”. I told him there was another one ahead, so I led him through the crowd. When we walked near Tai Heng Lei, he began shaking his head again and said, “next to the mahjong club there should be a group of aunties called Chun Fa and An Lau, not some shops with a name of Sauna.” I thought there should be many aunties like Chun Fa and An Lau at Dun Wong Sauna as well. So I said to the boy, “Well, why don’t you go ahead and take a look anyway? I’ll stay here and wait for you, in case that is not the place...” The boy looked up dubiously and walked ahead, and I slowly let go of his hand.
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you
Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back……
My Neon City is a series of mini-projects, commissioned by M+, inviting Hong Kong-based artists, writers, filmmakers and other cultural figures to examine, and reflect on, one or more of the city’s existing neon signs through their work. Check the Neon Map for their locations. Whether factual or fictional, and regardless of medium, it is hoped these projects can help prompt new ways of seeing neon signs and their role in visual culture.
