Para Site is excited to present Ten Million Rooms of Yearning. Sex in Hong Kong, a multi-venue exhibition looking at the connections between sex, desire and the city’s society and historical conditions. The show explores the ways in which desire is experienced and sex is had, hidden, fantasized, altered, and replaced by various factors: from family structure to class, from power relations to various identities (racial, sexual and beyond), from seclusion and solitude to the many worlds of contemporary subcultures, from architecture’s role in shaping intimacy to capitalism’s over-determination of Hong Kong’s embattled public space. The exhibition is particularly interested in the reasons for the changing attitudes towards sexuality in the recent history of the city.
