CHONG Hing Ki

Chong Hing Ki is an artist who works with collages. She collects, assemble, combines and transforms fragments into a new reality, expressing her response to her complex sense-of-place in the world. Not only does she believes that collage is the most effective way to represent her visual thinking, the images she creates in this body of work are also a form of aesthetic play and experimentation on the medium.

Pattern, colour, natural and urban elements take crucial roles in her work. Chong intends to create a work not only with cutouts and found images but also with paint. She combines her obsessions in decorative patterns and the colour gold with her strong interest in establishing a personal relationship with each piece. In addition, Chong is fascinated by the possibility of combining objects, she works hard to transform and place fragment in unexpected ways, with the intention to invite the audience to invent their own narratives through her work.

莊慶琪使用拼貼作為她創作的主要媒介。她收集和拼貼不同的物料,並結合繪畫組成一個新的畫面。拼貼所使用的材料本是不完整的,當所有碎片拼接起來將會被賦予新的意義。莊慶琪認為這種方法很適合表達記憶和感受,因它們也是不完整和複雜的。

“Maybe maybe it’s the clothes we wear,
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair.
Maybe it’s our kookiness,
Or maybe maybe it’s our nowhere towns,
Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds.
Maybe it’s our looseness,
But we’re trash you and me ,
We’re the litter on the breeze,
We’re the lovers on the streets,
Just trash me and you,
It’s in everything we do,
It’s in everything we do.”

Suede, Trash

也許這就是我們穿的衣服,
也許這只是我們的狂想,
也許這就是我們根本不存在的城鎮,
也許這只是我們墮落的生活,
但是我們只是廢物,你和我,
我們是微風中的垃圾,
我們是街邊的戀人,
我們做的每件事都多麼的無用……
