Lost Textures, Site-specific installation, 17th-15th floor, stairwell, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong, at “Exit Strategies” produced by David HY Chan 《異質地誌:褶疊待延的皇后大道》(2019) / 「出。略」 (陳浩揚策劃)

《異質地誌:褶疊待延的皇后大道》(全新委託製作)就地裝置建基於對皇后大道中及鄰近一帶的民間歷史的考查和藝術想像,圖像以併貼、浮雕、雷射版刻、現成物組合裝置、繪圖、和錄像投影的綜合形式呈現,將昔日的維港海岸線與中區街道地圖聯繫在一起,以1930年代的皇后大道中為主幹。皇后大道中和近鄰,由西向東,就在短暫的時空裡打開又整合,以第二代匯豐銀行(前身為大會堂)劃上句號,並不完全擱置大敘事。過去與現在同體,並不相對或對立,而未來就在我們的頂上懸空。

Linda Lai & the Floating Projects Collective presents a new commissioned work titled Lost Textures, based on collaborative research examining the vernacular histories of the neighbourhood around Queen’s Road Central. Imagery is presented in the format of a collage/relief, matching Hong Kong’s former coastlines with street maps of Hong Kong Island, along with a description of a walk through Queen’s Road Central back in 1934. Two single channel videos containing footage from an old Cantonese melodrama are also on view in order to experiment with the narratives of fragmentary posing, gestures and mannerisms.
