After this year’s Met Gala, “camp” got viral again as a nod to Susan Sontag’s essay, Notes On “Camp” (1964) which has published for more than a half of century. Even though She has written 58 jottings of “camp”, still, it is not easy to describe what is “camp” as the canon of “camp” changes over time. But the essence of “camp”, which is the love towards artificial and exaggerated aesthetics, remains unchanged.


Thanks to Chow Yun-fat’s pet phrase in Eighth Happiness (1988), a local comedy movie, “camp camp tei” has once become a buzzword among Hong Kongese in the late twentieth century. However, it has actually been narrowly interpreted as effeminacy with a connotation of being homosexual.


“Nicam Camp Night” (curated by Videotage Project Coordinator, Joseph Chen) comprises a twofold meaning of “camp”, which is framed in the aforementioned original and localized contexts simultaneously. And it is just like NICAM, the broadcast system playing dual languages, the original audio in a foreign language and the Cantonese dubbed audio, instantaneously.


Let’s celebrate!
