Documentation for an artwork + a show
一件作品 + 一個展覽 （記録）
This is a work and at the same time an exhibition, thus I name this event an artwork + a show.
The show/artwork ambiguity arises because this is a piece showcasing my experience of a ‘negotiated’ function of the Victoria harbor front.
The interaction between an individual and a place creates many possible ‘negotiated functions’ different from its original function. Instead of drawing people closer, most of the Victoria Harbour front in Hong Kong is distant or with barriers that stop people from staying long.
Despite its not too attractive look, the harbor front near Java Road under the Eastern Corridor offers relatively easy access.
Earlier this year, I set up a table and had a meal there.
On Nov 13, 2010, I staged a come back and set up a mini exhibition, another ‘negotiated function’ that I as an individual can actualize.
