Kai Tak Mansion and the Academy of Visual Arts have been closely linked together. However, due to reconstruction in Kai Tak area, the special relationship has disappeared since last year, and so have the tenants of the mansion. The different destinies between these two places became the starting point of this artwork.

In the mansion, there are a variety of objects left behind. They seem to be useless, but they, in fact, carry countless life stories and memories. The rust on them reflects the great length of time the tenants spent in the mansion.

Through de-rusting, the vestiges of old objects are eliminated, thus restoring them to their original appearance and reconstructing the “homes” that I explored in Kai Tak. Rust detached from the objects exists independently.

 

啟德面臨重建,居民及老店各散東西。啟德與視覺藝術院兩地的身世之不同成為了作品的源頭。

我在啟德遺址探索以往居民生活的痕跡,發現記載無數故事的舊物卻成為居民所遺下的垃圾,東西散落。

舊物因無用而鏽,鏽而無用。鏽見證時間的流逝,成為其載體。

透過去鏽,把舊物去掉使用痕跡,並建構成我於啟德所探索的「家」,鏽則脫物而自立。
