冼紈「Wave II」Sin Yuen “Wave II”

觀眾:這作品的動態使我聯想到中國的山水畫,它用了一個很簡單的方法把光及水流投影於牆上,這樣的表達給我很深的印象。我覺得冼紈的作品是我(在伙炭工作室開放計劃)看了這麼多的作品之中,暫時覺得較為新鮮的一件作品,值得參觀或者拍照(留念)。

A reviewer: The running water of this work makes me think of Chinese landscape painting, as the artist used a simple method to project the shadow of light and water on to the wall, I am very impressed. I think after seeing a lot of works (in Fotan Artists Open Studio), Sin Yuen’s work probably is the one that gives me fresh feeling, it is worth to pay a visit and take a picture.

文晶瑩「重寫歷史II」

觀眾:我覺得有關強姦議題的作品「重寫歷史II」表現出一種重重覆覆的感覺。雖然我們這些平常人看(性侵犯)好像是很小的事,但是(對於當事人來說)事件好像會愈來愈大,那種感覺會愈來愈難受。而另外,看到有個人好像用向前的方式去逃避,或是朝某方向躲開,(加上蛇手)就像一點點(黑點)積聚,結合那些黑點,在那黑暗的布幕上有種很不舒服的感覺。其實那黑幕就好像自己心底裡面那些不愉快的經歷。我覺得(作品內的)手很細,感覺不夠強烈。我個人覺得如果手的尺寸有所不同、有大小之分的話,那效果會更加突出。

A viewer: I think that “Rewriting History II”, which is a work discussing the issue of rape, showed a sense of repetition. Although normal people like us would think that (sexual assault) is a tiny issue, (for the victims) the issue will become bigger and bigger and the feeling would become worse and worse.On the other hand, (I) saw a person moving forward to escape, or escape towards certain directions, (snake-like hands) just like (black points) accumulating, and by combining those black points, together with the, (I) feel uncomfortable. Indeed that kind of dark black curtain seems like the unpleasant experience deep in my heart. I think that (paper) hands (in the work) are very small, thus the feeling is not so strong (to me). Personally, I think if the hands’ size could be varied, some bigger and some smaller, the effect would be more outstanding.


觀眾:這一個作品 (文晶瑩的「重寫歷史II」),我覺得Phoebe放了很多時間在學術研究上。如果不是她(對性侵犯議題)的表達,我們亦很難知道究竟現在香港有關強姦罪案的數字是多少。另外,我覺得這個作品某程度上有點太過華麗,看起來力量好像不是太大。不過,我仍然覺得這是一件好作品。

文晶瑩的回應: 我認為受害人不應被污名化,另方面社會亦應以正面的態度看待加害人,看他們犯案的原因,如何可以令他們更新,所以作品在描述兩者時都表現得較為正面。

A reviewer: For this work (“Rewriting History II”), I think Phoebe has spent a lot of time in academic research. If it was not her presentation, it will be very difficult for us to notice the number of cases of sexual crime in Hong Kong. Besides, I think that, to certain extent, the work is too gorgeous and it weakens the impact. Nevertheless, I think it is a good work.

Phoebe’s response: I think the victims should not be stigmatized, and on the other hand, the society should use positive attitude to treat the perpetrator e.g. trying to understand why they are committing crimes and help them to rehabilitate. Thus, this work presents the victims and the perpetrators in a positive sense.

強姦是 Rape Is

觀眾:我覺得(講述強姦是甚麼的)留言,內容除了有針對性方面的強姦行為以外,亦有針對生活方面的,譬如有些人講一些關於性的笑話,有時剛開始時以為自己能夠接受,但是後來才發覺原來是極度難接受,就在這時候,你就會覺得自己的思想經已給別人強姦了。又或者是有關時間、或者用精力去與這個社會去奮鬥、鬥爭的時候,你需要追得上(某些)生活(水準),便會覺得這個社會根本就是在強姦自己。

A reviewer: I think those message (about what rape is) is not only focusing on the behavior of rape, but also focusing on our lives. For instance, when someone tells a sex related joke, at the beginning, I thought that I could accept it (as a joke), however, after certain period of time, I found that the joke is extremely hard to accept, and at this time, you will think that your thought is already raped by another person. Or sometimes you use a lot of time or energy to struggle in this society, you need to catch up with certain living standard, you will think that the society is raping you.

文晶瑩的「家宅平安」Phoebe Man ’s “Home Sweet Home”

觀眾:地產霸權這一個題目都已經談論了一、兩年的了。而至於這個作品怎樣去表達(這一個主題)呢?我就看到有一個傳統視覺錯覺,即是(由線條組成了)一格格,(線與線條的交叉位置)中間有一點點(幻像),藉以表達現時廣告或者是地產商的宣傳,究竟是否錯覺?但其實住是一個很基本的事情,為什麼要弄到好像需要很多金錢,將住變成一件很奢華的事呢?在這條影片之中,我們能夠看到這一點。

A reviewer: The developer hegemony is a topic that has been discussed for 1 or 2 years. And how does this work express this topic? I have seen a traditional visual illusion (in the work), which is a grid by grid (formed by lines), and (at the intersection points) there is some points (illusion) in the middle, as to question if the T V commercials of real estate is fake or not. But, in fact, living is a very basic thing, why it seems that we must use a lot of money to turn it into a luxury thing? In this video, we could see the point.
