Highlights of the Year
Interactive Exhibition “After the Deluge” at Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank
From 6 to 31 January 2018, DSD co-organised with the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) an art exhibition titled "After the Deluge" and offered the Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank (THTSST) as an exhibition venue for the first time. THTSST is the first and largest stormwater storage tank in Hong Kong with a capacity of 100,000 cubic metres. Since its commissioning in 2004, it has successfully relieved the risk of flooding in Mongkok area. It was hoped that the concept and functions of the tank could be demonstrated by means of arts to enable the public to further understand the characteristics of water and flood prevention work in Hong Kong from a new perspective. This exhibition, created by a local artist, Mr. Kingsley NG, made use of the classic mythology of "Dayu Tames the Water" to bring out the contemporary "Dayu" story. While visiting THTSST, visitors could join a guided tour to learn more about the exhibits inside the tank.
