I worked on a series of drawings entitled ‘Stories around Town’ from early 1990s to July 1, 1997. Based on local myths, collected stories mixed with personal fabrication, the series is a record witnessing how an anxious, nervous city has been gradually falling apart. This series of drawings of ‘One Day Paradise’ is an extension of the ‘Stories around Town’ series, recording the day after the British left and before the Chinese came.

 

自1990年代初期至1997年,我製作了一系名為《坊間故事》的素描,透過本地神話、收集的故事加上個人虛構,紀錄這神經緊張、充斥焦慮的城市如何逐步瓦解。《一日桃源》是此系列的伸延,紀錄英人撤退、中國人還未進來的日子。

1. Can’t sleep on June 30 六卅難眠

It was raining all night on June 30. The British were gone, I didn’t miss them, but I nevertheless felt uncomfortable. I didn’t sleep well. In the middle of night, I woke up to go wee wee and I spilled a glass of water, bad luck all over. 六月三十果晚落大雨,英國人走哂,雖然無掛住佢地,總之好唔舒服。夜晚瞓得唔好,半夜起身痾尿重倒瀉杯水,真係大吉利是。
