「重寫歷史II」Rewriting History II

文晶瑩的剪紙裝置〈重寫歷史II〉把新聞圖片中的加害人變成單色剪影剪紙,不斷重複成環狀,象徵不息的循環。在《性本無罪 : 性罪行的成因與治療》*一書內,香港社會福利署的研究(2003)指出,大多數加害人被捕一至兩次,但他們其實已犯案幾百次或甚至上千次。一直到自己被抓才會停止罪行,很明顯干犯性罪行是一種心癮,有加害人覺得不值得為幾秒鐘的興奮而犯法,破壞自己的前途。

一般防止性侵犯案件的宣傳,常針對受害人,叫她們不要啞忍,好像事件發生全是她們的責任。今次文晶瑩的剪紙裝置支持加害人更新,也希望受害人復元,兩者兼重。

Phoebe Man’s paper installation Rewriting History II  has transformed photos of sex offenders in the newspapers into silhouettes and turned them into paper cutouts. A number of these paper cutouts were stuck together to form a circle. These objects can symbolize an endless cycle. The work references research* by the Social Welfare Department in Hong Kong which affirms that many offenders repeat their crime(s) (Yuen, Working group on Assessment and Treatment of Sex Offender 11). Some of them are believed to have committed sexual crimes hundreds or thousands of times, according to the answers to the questionnaires of the research. Furthermore, the research indicated that sexual assault could be a form of sex addiction. Rewriting History II presents the nature of this crime. Advertisements for prevention of sexual crimes seldom mention the perpetrator(s). The victims are always the focus. In this work Rewriting History II supports both the wrongdoers’ rehabilitation and victims’ recovery. Both sides are put in focus.
