工藝重索 Craft-ist@1a space

Shamshuipo, the most poor district in Hong Kong, residents here always try to repair the old stuffs rather than abandon them. Pottery craftsman also developed by the process of repairing or mixing with other materials( plastic, wood, metal etc). We found the displayed ready made objects on the street, trying to reform them into new exhibited pieces.

深水埗區,全港最貧窮的地區,生活於此地的人們想來千百樣補救破損物品,還原舊物功能的方法。陶器倒模技術歷史悠久,由工匠設法把破舊的陶器修補,重塑成不同的形態、接駁方法以至發展成與其他物料的結合(膠、木、金屬等)。

 

我們於每晚十時後開放的地攤及天光墟中找到不同的物件,找出曾經被修補過的物件,用陶泥把物件作物料上的轉化,除去顏色、除去氣味、著眼於修補後的物件形態之上,重新置於街上。
