  • Founded in 2010 and reinvented in 2015 by artist and art professor Linda C.H. Lai with a dozen of emerging artists, the Floating Projects (FP) occupied a 170m2 artistic production site in Wong Chuk Hang industrial area to answer the question: what can artists do with an empty unit in an industrial building with institutionally and physically defined constraints, and how do artists survive beyond the commercial gallery system and a public funds-dependent charity model? In August 2018, the Floating Projects Collective (FPC) moved into a new re-purposed industrial building in Shek Kip Mei’s JCCAC to drive a new phase FP 2.0, which remains a site of collaborative-individuated art experiments after an interdisciplinary and intermedia principle, and itself an art project that interrogates questions of space and being. The collective has grown from 12 to 17 members. We uphold rigorous mutual critique, and an approach to art-making that views a work as always in-progress with generative potentials. We persist in being a place where artists of varied generations could work together, meet in conversations and write about what we do.
