lanwei / 爛尾 / 2006-2012

artist statement

Abortive building projects are the ‘fruits’ of two to three decades
of fruitless chase after a future, an opportunity,
desires and dreams in a liberated society,
at a time of seemingly limitless economic expansion.
Buildings can be aborted, so can projects.
Plans may be aborted. so may hopes.
Ties between people could be aborted, so could relationships.
Life, i guess should not be aborted.

[P.S. i have been harbouring the concept of shooting abortive building projects in my mind for 5 years. fortunately, on the eve of government actions to clean up the mess, this concept nally became a reality,
sparing it from being yet another abortive attempt.]

在社會的開放,

或者經濟極速發展的背景底下;

爛尾樓正是過去兩三個年代

一群活在大時代的人對

前景、機會、人心和夢想的

一場搏鬥沒結果的結果。

建築會爛尾。工程會爛尾。

計劃會爛尾。希望會爛尾。

關係會爛尾。人情會爛尾。

人生。我想不應該爛尾吧。

‭[‬P.S‭. ‬這個在腦袋不斷浮現的爛尾攝影念頭,不覺已經超過五個年頭。
幸好終於在政府收拾爛攤前在現實中實現出來,不致爛尾收場。‭]
