Sitting, people do already for a long time. Therefore chairs have been manufactured ever since. In Hong Kong many of them end up on the street. Plastic chairs, wicker chairs, armchairs, stools, bar stools, office chairs. Old and new, whole, broken, rebuilt and repaired.
Together with alienated crates, cartons, wooden blocks and foam pillows they form curious roadside seating ensembles for the short relaxation or a little chat in between. Informal Seating Arrangements celebrates the diverse aspects of street life in Hong Kong and the improvisational skills of the urban residents.
Informal Seating Arrangements is the third of 9 volumes, Michael Wolf’s Encyclopedia of street life in Hong Kong’s Back Alleys.
