祥棧帆布

藝術家:Devil

帆布也可以用來做雨衣?在鴨脷洲長大的黃德根是祥棧帆布的第二代傳人,自小在店內幫忙,學習帆布加工技術。昔日生意主要依賴漁民訂造防水雨衣和船身帆布,由於漁民經常接觸海水,令雨衣的鈕扣容易損耗,所以祥棧的雨衣特別使用從外國訂購、比較堅固的喼鈕。

藝術家Devil在鐵閘作品中以常見的帆布顏色──紅、白、藍作為底色,襯托陪伴黃老闆多年的工具和帆布產品,包括線轆、衣車、打孔機、唐尺、圍裙、雨衣和剪刀,希望帆布加工這門珍貴的手藝能夠繼續承傳下去。

Cheung Chaan
Artist: Devil

Mr Wong, the owner of Cheung Chaan, was born and raised in Ap Lei Chau. The second generation of his family to run the shop, he started helping out as a little boy and soon learnt different kinds of textile processing and finishing techniques. In the past, the shop’s main business was producing custom-made rain gear, waterproof aprons and marine fabrics for local fishermen. To make sure their garments can withstand the harsh environments at sea, Cheung Chaan uses imported metal snap fasteners on their products rather than regular buttons. The background of the shutter artwork is inspired by the red, white and blue plastic canvas that is ubiquitous in Hong Kong and can be used to make all kinds of hardwearing products. The image also shows an array of tools and products from Mr Wong’s shop – including a reel of thread, a sewing machine, a hole puncher, a traditional ruler, a waterproof apron, a rain jacket and a pair of scissors.
