蘇記號

藝術家:黃鼎豐

蘇記號的老闆鄧國銘是鴨脷洲原居民,多年來見證着小島新舊交替的變遷。六十年代剛開業的蘇記號原本只是一間簡陋木屋,主要售賣船上用品如麻繩、竹枝、藤籮等,亦提供漁船維修服務。直至七十年代木屋戶遷拆,就搬往現址營業至今,售賣的多是各種漁船、艇仔用的金屬機械和零件如鎖鍊、錨等。

藝術家黃鼎豐將鐵閘作品分為兩半,右方是以木製的舊式漁船,配以麻繩,上蓋帆布,左方則是以金屬部件製作的新式漁船,作品表現了鴨脷洲的漁船和船具隨著社區發展的演變。漁民出海重視風水,祈求保佑,船頭要向海而不向山,你有發現作品中的船頭是向哪一個方向嗎?

So Kee Ho
Artist: Wong Ting Fung

So Kee Ho boat supplies shop is owned by Mr Teng, an Ap Lei Chau local who has witnessed the development of the district from a small fishing community to a dense urban neighbourhood. When he started his business in the 1960s, Mr Teng worked from an unassuming wooden hut, repairing boats and selling basic supplies like rope, bamboo poles and rattan baskets. In the 1970s, he moved his shop to its current location and expanded the inventory to include more heavy-duty equipment and accessories, such as chains and anchors. The shutter artwork reflects the urbanisation of Ap Lei Chau, and uses the fishing boat as a symbol for the island, with the right side representing the past, and the left side representing the present. When setting out to sea, to ensure good feng shui and a safe return for the people on board, a boat should face towards the water not towards the land. Can you guess where the sea is by looking at the artwork?
