榮記五金

藝術家:慧惠

雖然榮記的店舖名稱有「五金」二字,但實際上它是一間打鐵舖。1964年開業,主要為鴨脷洲的漁民製作漁船及維修船具。店舖裏面沒有貨品出售,但只要你說出口,無論形狀多奇怪的引擎零件、水隔、活門或抽氣扇管道等,老闆郭師傅都可以一一為客人度身打造。
藝術家慧惠經過細心觀察,在鐵閘作品上記錄了郭師傅製作白鐵盆的過程。首先要剪開鐵片的折口位,再用挫將接口磨平,最後用槌子固定形狀。過程中無需任何黏貼工具如釘子、螺絲或漿糊,一張鐵片變成盆子就如摺紙一般,看似輕易,實不簡單。

Wing Kee
Artist: Wai Wai

Wing Kee was established in 1964 to provide tools and boat accessories for the fishing communities in Ap Lei Chau. As well as selling hardware, the shop also offers sheet metal engineering services. Although there are no readymade products on display, Wing Kee’s owner Mr Kwok can customise almost anything, including engine parts, water filters, valves, and pipes for exhaust fans. The shutter artwork shows Mr Kwok in the process of crafting a sheet metal pan. First, incisions are made at each corner of the sheet metal so that the sides can be folded up. After the edges are filed smooth, the pan is carefully shaped with a mallet. Like origami and paper-folding crafts, the process requires no glue or staples – but it does require a meticulous eye, good hand skills and lots of patience.
