1. 請介你紹一下自己?

從事藝術創作、研究和策劃,喜歡收集別人的私密故仔。一直住在柴灣。

 

2. 你在油街過了一晚期間做了甚麼?

我爸爸生前是在油街的前身政府物料供應處做看更的,我很懷念他,所以想借這一晚來體會爸爸以前的工作。今晚天氣很冷,但我穿著爸爸冬季制服的大縷感覺好暖。爸爸是個怕出位怕麻煩的人,可能看更都有這種性格。我跟當晚的看更一起巡邏,聊當看更的事,分享爸爸在油街的點滴,和爸爸一樣他當看更是為了白天想有更多時間做自己嚮往的事,例如下棋、行山。

 

3. 你想觀眾怎樣參與?

聆聽完我的故事後,我希望觀眾會像我一樣,隨意在跟北角區找陌生人聊天,找出對於一個人的相似記憶。

 

1. Please introduce yourself.

Practitioner in the art field - making, researching and curating art projects. Interested in collecting private and intimate stories. Have been living in Chai Wan my whole life.

 

2. What did you do during your overnight stay at Oi!?

My father was a security guard at the former Oil Street Government Supplies Management Division when he was alive. It's a chilly night tonight, but I felt warm in my father's winter uniform coat. My dad always wanted to stay low profile and avoided causing trouble. Maybe this is a common persona shared by all security guards. When I patrolled with Oi!'s security guard on site, we chatted about life as a security guard and my dad's work at old Oil Street. Just like my father, the current Oi! security guard opted for this job as he preferred to spare more time in the daytime to do what he loved, e.g. chess, hiking.

 

3. How can visitors participate?

After learning my story, visitors can talk to a stranger at random in North Point just like what I did and look for a piece of memory that reminds you of another person.

 

 

 

12:00noon

把爸爸冬天的制服那到樓下的公園曬冬日太陽

 

12:30

把爸爸唯一站崗的照片到快圖美沖曬,很難看出他的那時候的年紀,總覺得他很年輕

 

從垃圾筒可見是80/90年代?

 

21:00

把爸爸的制服熨平,準備出發。

帶了照片,一套制服連帽子,腳架,膠紙,手機

 

21:30

穿上絨尼制服大縷,坐地鐵。

除膊頭外,我和爸爸的手一樣長

 

22:00

到達,油街很食風,而大縷很暖,英治時期的制服設計用料都很不錯。

 

23:10

中更看更不多願意跟我聊家事,只知道他有2女1子在國內;他和老婆在港

我問中更看更把照片放到哪裡,可以長久保留;他建議我放到更亭的電錶櫃,‘除非這裡拆了,否側不會變了’

 

23:40

夜更看更來了,原來他們差不多2個小時就要報更一次;

 

 

 

 

照片的形容:

他以前經常在油街出現,可這張照片是他唯一正式與油街的合照,到底是誰替他拍的呢?相中見他的面上掛上罕有的自信笑容,左邊咀角比起右邊更為揚起,但眉心卻是縐著而迫出一條深坑來,合成一個有點尷尬的表情,但是已是比平日的寬容。只見他麥黑的皮膚披上冬季英治時期制服,稱身的剪裁,很好看!平常也很小展露的一面噢。

有一年,前港英政府把爸爸的職位定名為「政府物資看管員」。這天來「黑」,跟現在的夜更看管員聊天,發現他跟我爸爸的性格有很相似的地方,怕麻煩,怕出風頭。他告訴我關訴油街的趣聞(道友,小男,南亞人士的佔領事件,政府的醜聞), 他白天的真我(喜好),風水靈異之事,沙士,禽流感的事,還有他的一位中學同學。
