SUMMARY :

Kai Tak Mansion and the Academy of Visual Arts have been closely linked together. However, due to reconstruction in Kai Tak area, the special relationship has disappeared since last year, and so have the tenants of the mansion. The different destinies between these two places became the starting point of this artwork.

In the mansion, there are a variety of objects left behind. They seem to be useless, but they, in fact, carry countless life stories and memories. The rust on them reflects the great length of time the tenants spent in the mansion.

Through de-rusting, the vestiges of old objects are eliminated, thus restoring them to their original appearance and reconstructing the "homes" that I explored in Kai Tak. Rust detached from the objects exists independently.
