洪聖街外牆壁

藝術家:黃志豪、聖伯多祿中學學生

漁民生活要睇天做人,觀測天象亦重視風水,信奉水神「洪聖」以保平安。建於1773年的洪聖古廟是區內最重要的法定古蹟,廟內經常有貓隻聚集,形成一道獨特風景。而每年農曆二月十三日的洪聖誕是鴨脷洲最熱鬧的日子,藝術家黃志豪及聖伯多祿中學學生將喜慶氣氛躍然牆上,多采多姿的節目包括接神儀式、放水燈祈福、龍獅助慶、傳統龍舟拜廟、賀誕會景巡遊等,為社區和街坊祈福。

In the past, when fishermen went to sea without modern technologies, good catches and a safe return depended on their fishing and boat-handling skills and good weather. To help ensure good fortune, many practised feng shui and sought blessings from Hung Shing, the sea deity and protector of fishermen and sea traders. The Hung Shing Temple in Ap Lei Chau, believed to date back to 1773, remains an important historical monument for the local fishing community. On sunny days, stray cats also gather at the entrance to warm themselves in the sun. The artwork is inspired by the traditional festivities of Hung Shing Festival, a major local celebration held on the 13th day of the second month in the lunar calendar. The elements shown on the artwork – including the floating lanterns, the dragon and lion dances and festive parades – are all believed to bring good fortune to the community.
