城市規劃員與打板球 | Urban Planner And Cricket 

2013


在孟買,青年人和小男孩在海邊、村口、橫巷打板球;在Mum52村的空地,那裡同時是停車場、市集、球場。我在地上以顏料畫虛線,那是板球場大小的空間;發球的方向和打球的空間大小,因為球場的出現而改變。我就像一個城市規劃員,由上而下地改變市民打板球的習慣。

村裡和村附近的青年,他們與我一起參與新球場的製作;他們借用油漆,在附近的地方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.
