張芷晴擅長製作平面縫紉與立體作品。她近年喜歡從日常生活中探索不同的物料,成為作品材料。她相信每種物料都有它的故事和性格:透過了解物料的特性,再與作品的意念配合,產生一種獨特的語言。她會探索各種可能性,挑戰既定框架和反思限制。

Photos on wood

Set of 5: 10 × 10 cm - 20 × 40 cm

Ma Shui Po Village is one of the urbanization villages in the Northeast Development Plan in 2007. The village was attacked step by step. This work recorded Ma Shui Po village’s present situation such as scenes of urban erosion. After the developmentplan, all the scenes will be only memories. Once the villages are gone, they will never return.

Real wood is an elements of mother nature, but a piece of real wood is representative of cutting trees and deforestation. Photography is one of the best ways to record the moment. Images of Ma Shui Po village on wooden pieces is a metaphor that the village was demolished and the trees were cut down. These images on wood preserve the land and memories of Ma Shui Po village. These photos are deliberately rough, damaged and semi-translucent, which shows that the village is village is gradually disappearing.
