《香港勝地-動物彳亍》

地圖提供資料之外,能否提供想像?黃淑琪x廿九几合力炮製一幅「想像地圖」,於十二月上海街視藝空間展示一眾希望發掘香港城市景觀以外的另類選擇。

黃 淑琪既不是行山專家,也不是毅行者,她只是相信要認識香港這個地方,並找到旅行的趣味,卻不必動用Lonely Planet。展覽的意念以一個問題起始:「如何突破地圖提供的資料,跨越至想像空間?」她以輕鬆的遊戲方式製造限制──在香港地圖上,只挑出三個動物名稱的地方:鹿洲村、狐狸頭和雞谷樹下。

她開始策動攝影旅程,並聯同另外兩名廿九几的成員何翹楚及陳志華進行文字創作,三個地方三個故事,製作成三本21英吋乘28英吋大書,並將懸掛在上海街視藝空間的大白牆上,供參觀著細意翻閱,神遊物外。街外櫥窗則掛上一幅只有以動物命名的香港地圖,空間內外譜奏出香港勝志地新旋律。三個故事,製作成三本袋裝書,同場發售。

「四零四」本年度再獲香港藝術發展局邀約策劃上海街視藝空間的藝術活動,為期一年。成員在過去三年積極參與上海街視藝空間的管理及策展工作,鼓勵藝術家表達其社會及歷史意識。「四零四」支持本地原創、普及藝術交流和鼓勵民間參與,致力打造上海街視藝空間成為理想的藝術交流平台。

“Hong Kong Top Sights — Animal Walk”
Ki Wong is neither a hiker nor a travel expert, but she holds the belief that it is possible to get to know Hong Kong and experience the thrill of travel and adventure without a copy of Lonely Planet in her hands. This exhibition begins with a simple query: can maps provide, apart from information, room for imagination and creativity? She prefers to put this question at ease and take on the conceptual limitations of the notion of ‘maps’ by applying the following rule-driven method: she only picks out places with names which refer to all sorts of animals in Chinese before planning her photographic journeys. Meanwhile, her friends from the the local publishing group, 29s, are also invited to join in the creative process and contribute associative writings on such places. Through this collaboration process, the same locations are both visualized and textualized, and are reproduced as a form of image-text collage and a work of locative imaginations.

Three pocket books, three locations in Hong Kong: Luk (deer) Chau Village, Wu Lei (fox) Tau, Kai (chicken) Kuk Shuo Ha, and three short stories. Text were written by Ki Wong, Chor and Ernest Chan.
