土磚絮語計劃 Mur Mur of the Brick (2018-2019)

Duration 日期:2018-2019

這幾年,幾位創作者一直在香港不同鄉村及城中村走訪,試把這城漸被遺忘的文化寶藏以不同藝術媒介的結連參予、尋找、招回。與不同年紀及文化背景社群互動,嘗試把香港的古舊文化以一個富時代感而又能承傳本土的藝術面向出現。

有這樣一群人,不同的理由,走入這差不多被遺忘的客家村中,嘗試去找尋失去的記憶,有從土地復耕中,享受土地與自然界的融和,也有重現失傳手藝,以泥土、破瓦、乾草、竹篾、印染、引入一抹清新,補償被城市冷酷氛圍而窒息的空間。

一笠涼帽,手織花帶,帶出一段段的情,在田野鄉郊中高低徘徊的歌聲,盡訴國情鄉愁,在大地緬懷之中、也有男女的對罵柔情。在艱辛貧瘠中、生命的不屈向我們娓娓道來⋯

我們,這一幫人,給你們獻上,以不同形式的藝術表達,在荔枝窩心路!
荔枝窩村擁有300多年歷史,是香港最具規模和歷史悠久的客家圍村之一。

土磚絮語計劃工作坊包括:

An ensemble of artists, artisans, and their presence in this nearly forgotten Hakka Village, to till the land, to bring to light lost craftsmanship, and to revel in the oneness of land and nature. With soil, shattered tiles, hay, bamboo strips, natural dye, a breath of fresh air is let in to the oppressive coldness of urban space.

The cooling of a bamboo hat, the intricacies of a hand knitted patterned band, and the oscillation of songs, evoke stories of sojourners’ thoughts of home, of romances and bickers, and of resilient lives that refuse to give up in dry and cracked earth…

These expressions of art are our gifts and testimonies to Lai Chi Wo.
