大家的掃把
Our Brooms
程展緯 Luke Ching

靠在牆邊的掃把原來是城市裡的寓言故事。

清潔工雖然不是魔女或巫婆,當中不少人都懂得自己製作掃把。仔細觀察的話,每把掃把都是由不同植物重組而成,不單是標本,更具有魔法,在公園施法控制落葉,營造季節的氣氛。掃把會一直放在公園裏,然後拜託落葉有靈,在功能和慾望之間留下你我他的故事。

計劃會招募「研究團隊」成員,通過研究植物,及它們作為物料、欣賞清潔工的智慧和想像工具的可能性,解構掃把背後的故事,並提出更多掃把作為遊戲道具的可能。

Brooms lying on the street corner are indeed fables of the city.

Though street sweepers are not witches or wizards, each of them knows how to make the broom of his/her very own. Take a closer look at those brooms, see? They were made up of different plants. They are not dead objects. On the contrary, they do have magic. In our playground, the broom regulates fallen leaves to suit the seasonal mood. Brooms always belong to our parks and playgrounds, channelling with those fallen leaves, leaving no traces but stories about us.

The project will recruit a team of “researchers”. Through studying plants and the method of upcycling them, we will uncover the folk wisdom behind and the unlimited possibilities of tool making. Let’s unlock the stories and unleash the capability of brooms.

程展緯 Luke Ching

程展緯18歲前是木顏色高手(全班數一數二),篆刻都唔錯;26歲前跟陳老師學習混合媒介創作,當年混合媒介在媒介分類中就是「其他」。30歲前曾當四年級班主任,主教美勞兼教常識,30歲後才學會游水和踏單車,但還未懂中文打字就結婚了,算是一生的成就。40歲前關心社會的公共空間和探討禮物經濟發展,希望在活生生的社會中回收活生生的藝術再學習。40歲後專注個人職業發展,立志成為黃馬褂。

Before the age of 18, Luke Ching was known as a pro in colour pencil drawing and was among the best in his class. He was pretty good at seal carving too. Before turning 26, he learned to work with mixed media under the tutelage of Chan. At the time, mixed media was categorised as 'others' when one had to specify the medium of an artwork. Before 30, he worked as a teacher of grade 4 students, teaching art and general studies. After 30 he finally learned to swim and cycle, but before he managed to learn to type in Chinese, he got married - which is his lifetime achievement. Before the age of 40, he took an interest in public space in our society and the development of gift economy, hoping to recycle lively art from a lively society and learn from that. After turning 40, he started focusing on his personal professional development, hoping to become a boss's pet.
