Looking at the wall

看著這堵牆

Looking at the wall
This work has been completed by more than 30 people. Some brought along leaves to the studio and learnt making the leaf pigment and paint with it directly in the pre-marked grids on the wall. Living in a city like Hong Kong, a large part of our life is surrounded by all kinds of high walls. A wall is built in front us; but should it not be a barrier that blocks us from reaching out? Can it be a wall that encourages us to embrace the environment we live in with a new perspective? These participants have left their answers on the wall.

作品有超過三十多人參與,他們帶來葉子,學習自製葉子顏料,然後繪畫在牆上。居住在城市化的香港,我們每天都被高高的牆壁包圍著,可否避免不被阻擋?這堵牆又可否引領我們走近自然?參加者把自己的答案記錄在這堵牆上。
