Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and co-organised by the Museum of Art and Para/Site Art Space, the exhibition reassembled Pak's works previously shown in the Hong Kong Exhibition at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and turned them into a new exhibition. The concept of "Hong Kong Diary" is an extension of Pak's "Making (Perfect) World: Harbour, Hong Kong, Alienated Cities and Dreams" in the 53rd Venice Biennale held in Italy from June to November 2009. Under the curatorship of Tobias Berger in association with Para/Site Art Space, "Making (Perfect) World" featured a series of philosophic and provocative masterpieces in the international arts arena.
