很高興收到得到何穎雅的允許,能夠在平台上推薦她的作品《明日大致多雲》,其影像散文風格,為大事件下的香港城市提供了一幅冷冽觀察。

何穎雅 Elaine W. Ho and Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga

‘Precipitations’ is a video essay filmed in Kowloon, Hong Kong, during the rainy spring of 2013, less a forecast than a portrait of the city, drawn via the journeys of several people involved to varying degrees with art and social activism. It falls within the precipices of an everyday and the realm of change, where such change comes about by the breadth of a footstep, with the crossing of a threshold, through the struggle for sociopolitical transformation.

Focusing on four groups spread around the vicinities of Yaumatei, one of the last remaining neighbourhoods of the city with vestiges of the old, precipitation occurs as the speed and density of Hong Kong’s way of life and as movement in search of another direction.

「明日大致多雲」拍攝於2013年香港九龍多雨的春天。借用一則天氣預報,通過跟隨一群在藝術和社會運動之間搖擺的人的生活軌跡,本片描繪出對香港的城市印象,它把視野落在普通日常生活與社會變革的距離之上——這個距離也許只有一步之遙;也許是需要跨越的鴻溝;也許是社会政治转型的挣扎。

油麻地是香港少數,鄰里舊物仍舊處處,通过记录四個活躍於这一區域的社会組織,“明日大致多雲”,對香港快速又稠密的生活方式,提出更多的面向和可能性。


这件作品 创作于2013年三月至七月间,在香港活化厅社区艺术空间驻留时期。
This video was made between March-July 2013 during a residency at WooferTen community art space in Hong Kong.
