水鳥 | Water Bird 
2018


許多年前,漁農署帶領漁民在大生圍村製作裝置,趕逐吃魚鳥;今天,保育者與漁民年年降低塘水水位吸引水鳥停留;我們製作像候鳥飛翔展翅的屋簷,裝置在儲存魚糧的倉庫上,遮陰擋雨;同時代表保育者的環保意志,也象徵村民從傳統養魚方法轉向魚鳥共生的美好信念。

作品由鍾惠恩及吳家俊共同創作,作品於「魚塘源野藝術節2018」展出。2018年1月,藝術到家與香港觀鳥會首度合辦「魚塘源野藝術節2018」,以元朗大生圍為起點,透過藝術家駐村、生態導賞等活動,融合與藝術和生態保育相關的議題,跟大眾一同體會何謂「永續生活」。

Many years ago, the governments lead fishermen to expel the birds away from fish pond. Today, nurses and fishermen reduce the water level of ponds to attract waterbirds every year. Artist make eaves like migratory birds flying and spreading. It covers the rain and shades; it symbolizes the villagers' turning from the traditional method of fish farming to the good faith of fish and birds symbiosis.

The work “Water Bird” was co-created by Chung Wai Ian and Ng Ka Chun. It was presented in the project “Fish Pond Sustainable Art Festival”, which was held in January 2018, The project was organized by Art Together and Hong Kong Bird Watching Society, with a view to further promoting the core concept - sustainable living.
