Golden Hour. 2006 - 2015
Susan Pui San Lok's theatrical installation, Golden Hour, also centres on a different sense of time. The work evokes the atmosphere of a bygone era, that of the 1960s: a period where, for the first time, influences from western pop music were admitted in China and manifested in ballrooms and Cantopop. The installation can be seen as a temporary, permeable demarcation: a place where the visitor, while listening to a "makeshift medley of melodies for dancing and dreaming," is invited to re-think time and to upgrade special moments to gold.
