作者简介:

 

我努力创作一些作品来吸引观众,使他们驻足观赏,全情投入地细细品味,重新审视他们之前忽视的东西。

我希望能将那些细微的记号和痕迹放大,并把它们展示到观众面前。分层和重复可以唤起沉睡的记忆,并且他们通常是对短暂瞬间的惊鸿一瞥。

在我游览过的地方,无论是瞬间的风景及自然风光,还是蕴含着浓厚的社会、文化和历史背景都给我留下了深刻的印象。

I strive to create work that encourages the viewer to pause and look closer, to draw in and reveal the overlooked and the unseen.

I look to amplify the subtle signifiers and traces held within locations and present these to the viewer. Layering and repetition are employed as a means to evoke dormant memories and these are often fractured glances of a fleeting moment.

I am very influenced by places that I visit, both by the immediate sense and presence of my physical surroundings and by the deeper underlying social, cultural and historical aspects.

 


 

展览前言: 

 

该系列以香港的两个特有元素为基点,即霓虹灯广告牌和竹建筑。

霓虹灯牌和竹脚手架是香港城市构造中不可磨灭的一部分。然而前者往往意味着后者的消亡。 竹脚手架可以出现在那些光滑、崭新的建筑物周围,也会出在小商店或者小餐馆周围,将这些小建筑连同它们的霓虹指示灯一起被拆毁。

竹制脚手架于19世纪首次引入香港并用于建筑行业。虽然年代久远,但如今在香港它仍是大规模使用的一种可靠,安全,稳固的方法。从远处看,竹子像是把大楼隐藏在一个透明的茧中,使下方的立体结构变得似有若无。

20世界50年代以来,霓虹灯广告牌定义了香港的城市构造。设计初衷是商业用途,然而许多霓虹灯因自身的特点一跃成为香港的标志。作为城市的标志和重要的地标,它们在这个密集扩张的城市中起着导航作用。霓虹灯和制作霓虹灯的艺术家们的数量都在减少,湾仔和中环的发展也变得缓慢。

Project bio:

A series taking as its starting point two elements unique to Hong Kong: Neon signs and bamboo construction.

The neon signage and bamboo scaffolding in Hong Kong are an indelible part of the cities make-up. However the former often signals the laters demise. The bamboo that encases slick new buildings can spur thoughts of a small shop or maybe a restaurant demolished and removed to make way, along with its neon marker.

The use of bamboo scaffolding was first introduced, for use in the building industry, to Hong Kong in 1800's. It is still employed today as a reliable, safe and strong method on a scale quite unlike anywhere else. From afar the bamboo appears to shield buildings in a translucent cocoon, lending the solid structure beneath an ethereal presence.

Since the 1950's neon signs have defined Hong Kong's urban makeup. Designed with a commercial function, many of these become symbols in their own right, acting as markers and landmarks for navigating the dense urban sprawl. The signs, and the artisans who produce them, are in decline, the streets of Wan Chai and Central are gradually losing their glow.
