This compilation showcases works made by female video artists. From the adventures of the walking vagina in Rati by Phoebe Man to the two video works on Hong Kong’s famous Cantonese Opera duo Song of the Goddess by Ellen Pau and Suet-Sin’s Sisters by Yau Ching, this selection maps the disparate ways in which female artists address topics of gender and sexuality.

本作品集輯錄了女性錄像藝術家的作品。由文晶瑩的《慧慧》中敍述會行會走的陰唇,以至兩部紀錄了香港女同性戀者藝術家的作品鮑藹倫的《似是故人來》和游靜的《雪仙的妹妹》,刻劃了女性錄像藝術家對性取向的不同演繹方法。
