For hundreds of years, the water in Chuen Lung has played an important part in the villagers’ lives. It irrigated paddy fields in the past, nourishes watercress in the present, and gives a special taste to tea and tofu dessert… Grassleaf sweet flag grows by the river. These taps mark the flow of mountain water.
The work “Tap Into The Mountain” was co-created by Chung Wai Ian and Ng Ka Chun. It was presented in the community art project “Hi! Hill” which curated by Art Promotion Office. The wax prototype was produced by courtesy master Kung Chi Kin, and more than 100 copper taps were finally made by casting. Artist together with a villager replaced the old taps into new tap in the village.
The images of Chuen Lung River was taken by documentary photographer Chak Wai Leung.
