Concept: In 2010, we pushed the baby bed that our daughter has slept in to the street. Above the bed is a custom made baby mobile, made with a huge umbrella, along with eight transparent plates of our family. The eight plates represent how we have proceeded since 2003. The umbrella turns as we walk on. At this moment, Clara actually has another baby in her tummy waiting to sleep in this bed.
Years after years, we hope that the next generation can understand we have tried to fight a better future for them, to fight for a society with justice.



作品名稱: 七‧一新人系列2010 — 床前太陽光

創作材料:亞加力膠板、傘
創作日期: 2010年7月1日
創作地點: 香港 灣仔至中環
作品記錄人姓名:朱耀煒,翁志考, Carol Chan

創作理念:

2010年7月1日,把女兒曾經睡過的嬰兒床置於手推車上,女兒坐在床內,床上置一把大傘,傘邊緣掛著八個象徵我們這一家的透明圖像,八個圖像象徵由2003年至2012年這八年,大傘一路行一路轉動,也是模仿一些嬰兒床頭玩具。我們一家人就這樣在大街大巷遊行。展示於人眼前的,就是一個實實在在的香港藝術家家庭的行為藝術生活寫照。遊行時,心裡想,包括Clara腹中未出世BB,一家四口,乎復何求?在烈日當空下,我們帶著嬰兒床、女兒及腹中的小BB去遊行,爭取甚麼甚麼之外,更要身體力行,讓我們的下一代明白,至少我們也持久地、決心地為他們的未來生活爭取過,努力表達過,為貧富懸殊嚴重、官商高度勾結的香港社會作出抗議。
