commemorative coins(中國發行回歸紀念幣), granite, paper, ink
I am a niece who was born in a different country than my uncle. I got a 1997 commemorative coin from him as a gift when I was a child. After 2019, I decided to create a container made of granite to pass the coin to my nephew, who was born in Toronto, follows with a letter. I wish one day I will read them my diaries during these two years, which I do not dare to read alone.
"Your home as museum" is a workshop on Hong Kong history. The workshop was initiated and facilitated by Dr. Vivian Ting. from 8 August 2020 to 13 September 2020.
This artwork was started during this workshop. It means an assignment of memories to me.
2020年秋季，長期wfh，Vivian好有心思搞咗一個workshop叫your home as museum。了解博物館角色、物件身世。每個參加者嘅物件，其實亦都代表緊香港嘅歷史，六堂，每堂都好精彩. . .老土講句，好似一份記憶嘅功課。
