Actually, there are many projects because I do performance and others like … concept, action …
because I think there is an aesthetic when we link different people together. Because there are many
people around with an idea and I think art is a good platform to link them. I want to explore the
aesthetic like this.
Maybe we can use the term „community activism“ as a description of my artistic concern. So, firstly
it’s the aesthetic about how to link people around and also, it is a community base we want to focus,
I want to focus on the community ‒ not the general sense of the public.
Maybe one example is I have been working with the issue of the Tian-an-men incident. I have a
project here which is called „Cycling to the square“. I want to use the symbol of a bicycle. Because
the bicycle to me is a symbol of the students during the Tian-An-Men incident. So, I created a scene
of many bicycles cycling inside the city, traveling in the city. It is like restoring a piece of history and
remind Hong Kong people of something. A picture.
And at that time ‒ we started in 2010 ‒ we had open calls. Everyone could dress up like the students
at that time and we started from Woofer Ten, then we cycled to Victoria Park, we had the
candlelight ceremony during the day of June 4 ‒ when Tian-An-Men incident happened. We created
the scene of Tian-An-Men incident together with different people.
It is very difficult to say who owns this project etc. But in most of them we don’t actually care about
this. Because I think artists in Woofer Ten, they find this meaningful to do, so they do it together.
The concept is changing. And this project is also changing. We started in 2010, so it is more than 5
years. Actually, these projects keep changing. And I have been trying to push, everyone can do it. I
even put a manual on the internet so that some other artists use this model to do in other places, to
do in Hong Kong, island side, some artists even do it in Beijing. This is something like … called with
the Joseph-Beuys term „social sculpture“, „social organism“. It’s something organic. Artists initiate some technique and then it is changing organically. Everyone is an artist. But they have to be aware,
„Artists“ for me, personally, maybe they experiment their life, spend their life trying, exploring
something so that it means something.
