文晶瑩的個展「食咗我隻居?」將會探討香港的房屋問題。房屋原本是人類基本需要,人人也應有地方住。在香港,房屋卻成為一些投機炒賣商品,以致香港人要捱貴租、買貴樓,香港藝術家難以負擔租用工作室。2012年火炭工厦的樓價於一年內升了差不多五成,2013年也升了一成,遠高於人工和通脹的升幅。因為樓價高,大厦被拆毀重建,工作室被業主賣掉,有些藝術家每二年便要另找和搬工作室,有一個月不能創作。亦有因為租金飛升,要找更多人夾份租屋,甚至放棄租用工作室。這樣的環境實在不利於藝術發展,也難令人安居樂業。

「食咗我隻居?」展覽將會於伙炭藝術工作室開放期間主要展出四組作品:

1. 「食咗我隻居?」樓盤廣告
2. 「家宅平安」
3. 「賣磚頭
4. 「山景」

「食咗我隻居?」為伙炭藝術家工作室開放計劃2014參展活動之一,由香港藝術發展局資助。於2014年1月11- 12日、18-19日及25﹣26日連續三個週末,下午2時至6時假火炭工業區舉行。展覽期間,每小時均有公眾導賞,另有工作坊,歡迎查詢。

“Erosion of Home?” the solo exhibition of Phoebe Ching Ying Man explores the housing issue in Hong Kong. Perceived as a basic human needs in most societies, housing on the contrary has become one of the most recognized speculative commodity in Hong Kong. High prices and climbing rents impose huge burdens on ordinary people and artists. It is hard for artists to own their studios. Prices of industrial buildings in Fo Tan rose 50% in 2012 and by another 10% in 2013. To profit from the rising market, many owners sold their properties. Artists are forced to move out of premises they had rented. They have to find new flats every two years. Disruption and even total stoppage of work for a whole month occurs when shifting from one place to another. Flat sharing has become the trend and closing down of studios is now a common way out as speculators continue to push prices up. The potential development of individual artists, and even people’s daily lives are hindered as a result of overheating of the real estate market.

“EROSION OF HOME?” mainly comprises 4 sets of art pieces to be exhibited during Fotanian Open Studios:

1. Estate Adverts 
2. Home Sweet Home
3. Selling Bricks
4. Mountain View

In conjunction with Fotanian Open Studios 2014, “EROSION OF HOME?” will be held during 11th-12th, 18th-19th & 25th – 26th January, three consecutive weekends, from 2pm to 6pm at the Fo Tan industrial district.
