TRAPPED

TRAPPED

About exhibition (有關展覽 )

40 square feet can be the size of a toilet, a kitchen or a balcony. It is just enough for three or four people to lie down, four or five swivel chairs, or 57 pieces of tiled A4-sized paper. But to some people, it is the size of the entire house which they call home.

 

The tiny space in this house compels you to do everything on or around the bed: sleeping, washing vegetables, having meals, writing letters and watching TV. For some people, it is also where the children do homework and play games. Living here is like being trapped in a cage. Dilemma is what it’s all about. If you need to catch your breath, stay in this trap and entertain yourself.

 

Now, SoCO is hosting photo exhibition – Trapped to reveal severe housing problems in Hong Kong with photographs and a video. Photographer Benny Lam captures the breathless moments where residents are trapped in cage homes and subdivided units. Three young Hong Kong people Natalie Chan, Nicola Fan and Sherman Makvolunteered for a touching short film about actions and hope.

 

40呎,可能是廁所、是廚房、是陽台,剛容得下三四個平躺的人,四五張旋轉椅子,又或平攤57張A4紙。但對有些人來說,那是一整個家。

 

家裏空間太小,一切都在床上發生。睡覺、洗菜、吃飯、寫信、看電視、甚至孩子做功課、玩游戲,人,仿佛困在了籠子裏。要稍稍喘一口氣,唯有在困局中自娛自樂了。

 

香港社區組織協會現正舉辦攝影展「侷住」,以相片和影像為你披露香港日益嚴峻的房屋問題。攝影師Benny Lam以獨特視角呈現籠屋、板房的侷促環境,3位香港年輕人陳曉慧 (Natalie Chan),范嘉恩 (Nicola Fan) 和麥曜麟( Sherman Mak) 義務拍攝短片,講述數位香港市民親身行動,改變社會不公,協助基層逃出困局的故事。
