Wearing Rainbow

某日路經中文大學,看到掛上彩虹旗的民主女神像,啟發了我們利用代表同志六色彩虹旗在公共空間的雕塑進行一系列照片。

刻意在公共空間拍攝是為了使本來私密性的事情賦予新意思。過往同志議題總是被標籤藏於衣櫃裡,我們會以「出櫃」來形容公開自己性取向,如同各類有關性的議題總是不能公開暢所討論。我們希望藉此拍攝活動,將作品取名”雕塑的新衣” ,把彩虹旗當成衣裳,出櫃跳躍到公共空間展現,形成一幅有趣的地景照片。

而拍攝使用的這面六色彩虹旗是自行買布拼合縫製。我們相信即使同樣是六色彩虹,每種顏色都有各自光譜;我們無需要跟著固有樣版模式,每一個人都有獨一無二的旗幟,每一個人都能夠活出自己斑斕色彩。

從來,香港都沒有一個雕塑與同志平權有關。又或者說,香港的社會,乃至公共空間,根本沒有歷史可以去紀念這一回事。這一次,我們以自製的彩虹旗為六個雕塑「加冕」,使公共空間的雕塑,也能默默地為同志平權說一句加油。

這次創作讓我們有機會搜尋香港不同地區雕塑藝術,整系列作品都是在清晨時間拍攝,並在半偷摸的狀態下完成。
到底公共空間雕塑能否被二次創作?我們不懂得往哪裡找才有答案,於是把答案擱在一旁,先把計劃實行。

今天,我們只能利用彩虹旗「加冕」。但在未來,我們希望香港的公共空間終會有一個揮舞著彩虹旗的雕塑。

 

We took this chance to scout and hunt down sculptures that scattered across different areas of the City. The entire series were done in dusk times and sneakily like guerrilla action. Can public sculptures be part of art re-creation? With the question in mind, we carried out this plan.

Taking photograph in public spaces was an expression, bringing something new into issues that is often considered private, like sexual orientation. Homosexuality has always been labeled and described as “hiding in the closet”, we even refer the revealing or to openly discussing one’s sexual orientation as “come out”, same goes to other sex-related agenda – they are simply not for public discussion. We hope, by having this wearable rainbow flag, project some interesting landscape photos reflecting the image of “coming out” in open spaces.

The six-colored LGBT rainbow flag is uniquely hand-made from fabrics of different pattern. We believe even its the same LBGT rainbow, there should still be variations instead of stereotypes. We all have that uniqueness within, everyone should just be glamorously colorful.
