CHAN Cheuk Ying

Chan Cheuk Ying is interested in local culture. Her works relate to the value of traditional culture and create a reflection between social development and cultural heritage. Culture is easily eliminated or marginalized. She thinks traditional culture and history are the roots of our city that we should not overlook. Most of Chan’s video works are documentary-based, as she is influenced by a video projection artist, Krzysztof Wodiczko. Wodiczko is interested in real people and real stories, and he projected his videos in public to show what we ignored every day. Inspired by his works, Chan explored Tai O in her video projection project called “Tudistone” (Year). It indicates the relationship between nature, religion and Tai O villagers. From her missionary experience in Tai O, she discovered Tai O villagers use stones to represent the God of the Earth, they believe the power of nature can protect their lives. She projects video of the villagers’ daily life and a human face on a stone to visualize the image of the God of the Earth. It creates a connection between the virtual moving image with a stone in nature.

陳卓盈對本土文化感興趣,故她的作品都圍繞着傳統文化的價值。她希望觀眾能夠透過作品反思社會發展與文化傳統的關係。文化經常被邊緣化,甚至被淘汰。她認為傳統文化和歷史是社會的根,人們不應該忽視。 陳卓盈的作品大多以記實及媒體方式表達。另外,她受到波蘭的一位藝術家影響,並在2018年的作品中嘗試以投影方式去記述大澳漁民對自然及宗教的關係,以藝術媒體去記錄香港的小故事及文化。
