Am I A Ghost? is an interactive installation that invites members of the public to test their status as a ‘ghost.’ Here, the audience walks into a telephone booth where they answer multiple-choice questions based on the characteristics of ghosts as depicted in Hong Kong and Southeast Asian films. The assessment yields real-time results, revealing to the public when a ‘ghost’ (the visitor) participates in the exhibition. The playfulness of the multimedia installation gestures to a number of politico-historical and social issues, such as the Cantonese term “ghost” which stands in for “gangster” or “spy,” and whose presence amongst refugees is seen as threatening.

C&G (est. 2007, Hong Kong) is composed of two  Hong Kong  artists  and curators, Clara Cheung and Gum Cheng, who founded the art space ‘C&G Artpartment’  in  Hong Kong in  2007. Keenly concerned about Hong Kong’s art ecology and current events, C&G use their art to respond to social and cultural issues. The practice of C&G  is both humorous and challenging, and their activities are often  collective and participatory in nature.  Recent projects include: ‘Not as Trivial as You Think: Shanghai Art Quiz’ at the 12th Shanghai Biennale (2018) and a series of ‘Decongestants of West-Kowloonization’ in the public space around the Artpartment. C&G live and work in Hong Kong.
