ArtOxygen ‘[en]counters' 印度孟買藝術家駐場計劃

ArtOxygen ‘[en]counters'  Artist In Reseidence, Mumbai, India 




在孟買,青年和小孩在海邊、村口、橫巷打板球,打板球是那裡很普及的運動。在一個叫「Mum52」的村落空地,那裡同時是停車場、市集、球場。我在地上以顏料畫出虛線構成的板球場。同時,我刻意的把發球方向改變,使打板球的村民意識到新球場的不同。藝術家就像一個城市規劃員,由上而下地改變市民的生活習慣。

村裡的青年與我一起參與新球場的製作,住在鄰村的人借用油漆,在附近的街道、後巷畫上更多打板球的地方。這是一個佔用城市空間的練習。


This was a community art project in Carter Road, Mumbai. Inside a community called Mum 52, the open area is shared by all the villagers. This is their market, playground and car park. By painting a cricket court in unusual colourful dotted line by the artist and young villagers, the hidden cricket court was stated and highlighted. It represented the concept of “public space” in the mind of local people. Mum 52 cricket court became a reference for other villages nearby. They created their own playgrounds in front of the building and in the narrow alley. Their team name and the word "NO PARKING" were even written on the wall, these are their graffiti showing their needs and imagination of space.
