“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:
