CC Bureau 中文

Installation + performance

Wooden table of aluminum & formica-finish, closed-circuit cameras & monitors, glasses of water, books dimension variable, 2004

The vertical skyline taken from the Hong Kong Cultural Centre has been transformed into a large desk (bureau) good for two persons. People working there can see each other through the monitors fitted underneath the glass right next to them. The Terms and Conditions of Hire of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre was “deconstructed” by moving away all punctuations and splitting the original words and sentences randomly. It has been re-designed in a format of poems, which were read for the live performance.
