Rest and Peace | Carl Cheng Chi Ming

I started my career of art education and practice on Sik On Street. Eight years passed silently. The tranquil, friendly neighbourhood helped me to enjoy my work.

I had planned to exhibit site-specific art installations along the street, but never got around to it until just recently – two years after I’d already moved elsewhere. Fortunately I can still paint on the wall at the entrance and the shop-owners still allow me to show my rather strange art pieces.

 

The show questions urban development with reference to classical legends. There is no lengthy artist’s statement accompanying the exhibition, so the works are left open to interpretation.

 

There were once printing and window blind workshops in Sik On Street. People once sold chicken and other small items from makeshift stalls that huddled under the banyan tree. The shelters were all demolished more than a decade ago.

 

But I once lived here, and I still remember.
