有關展覽 About exhibition

2011年本港的人均收入踏入歷史新高,但現時仍有近十萬貧民,蝸居在籠屋、板間房、棺材房、工廈劏房等不人道環境;展覽透過鏡頭訴說在繁華都會背後的陰暗面,同時展現貧民困境求生的韌力。

 

十幾個單身的家庭的擠在狹窄的空間,其中能產生的衝突與生活上的扭曲而求存,可想而知。貧窮本身不可怕,失去人的尊嚴才是重點。住屋除了是睡覺的地方,更多是一個人面對生活喜怒哀樂的瓶子,一片建築強壯身心的私人角落。

冬去春來,年復年,居民都表示’住住先’,希望這不是夢!

 

Hong Kong’s wealth has reached an all-time highest in 2011 while now there are around 100,000 people living at inadequate housing such as sub-divided units, rooms, cubicles, bedspaces, cocklofts, roof-top huts in Hong Kong. By using the voice of the photos, the exhibition unveils the dark side of the metropolitan and shows the toughness of the underprivileged in urban slums. According to official statistics, over 320,000 people are on the waiting list of public rental housing and the number is increasing due to the insufficient allocated units every year, decrease of newly built flats every year and increasing number of working poor and needy.

 

Tens of singles of families are living in such a limited space, we can easily imagine how hard it is, conflicts and distortions and struggle to survive are the common issues among them. Poor is not terrible compared to the loss of dignity. Home is not only a space for sleep. It is a bottle for collecting our emotions and feeling in daily life, it also help ourselves become stronger and to create hope and opportunities. Winter gone and spring comes, years and years… “sojourning as tempura?” Hope that better allocation is not a dream for the poor.
