In the dark of the night

18 02 2017

I just had a freaky experience. I went for a walk to clear my head on what is quite a windy, wintry night in Hong Kong. It was ten to midnight. In front of me was a dark, winding road that I had never noticed before, running down a hill and shaded by trees. As I walked down, I felt like something was watching me or at least, there was someone else, unseen nearby. Then I turned a corner. What did I see? Eleven  – eleven –  cats all sitting in the shadows and looking right at me – as though I had just interrupted their secret meeting – with their flashing satan eyes. The horror.

Subhashok The Art Centre, an impressive concrete structure in the leafy Sukhumvit hinterland, is another addition to the city’s growing and impressive art scene, with mural by Cece Nobre.
