DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Dai Pai Dong is an open kitchen. It is a unique down to earth aura of life. Everything they have to prepare is out on display, and it is cooked where you can watch. It is the most benevolent culture scene in Hong Kong.

My work is painting a sense of place. I hope audiences to refresh their memory in place on Dai Pai Dong. In my work, I intend to depict the working behavior of the team members in details and leave a blank background inviting audiences to fill in back their emotions, the structure and environment of this place in their mind. Audiences may review on the ‘Space’ and ‘Place’, recall some experiences by personal view. They may find out that “Space” is a fact but empty, like time, without Humanity. “Place” is a landscape of relationship with human activities and human touch.

有些「地方」可能對部分人來說只是「空間」,而有些「空間」則是其他人重要的「地方」。大牌檔是香港獨有的開放式飲食空間, 當中的「人、情、味」, 令這細小空間變成了一個有文化脈絡和生活味道的地方.

作品是描畫大牌檔的人和物 , 希望觀眾能在留白的位置加上自己的「地方記憶」, 使大牌檔在眼前活現 , 尤如食客 , 情感上身置其中 , 使這「地方」在殆盡的記憶中再現 , 雜湊成五味紛陳的人文風景 , 再而思考人與地方如何產生情感聯繫 , 明白「空間」只是一種「生活事實」,跟時間一樣,是缺乏人文或文化意義,而「地方」則由記憶、想像與認同所構成, 生活於其中的人賦予關係 , 發現意義和經驗的世界
