"When the mountain hangs the clothes"

The Laundry Worker has been imagining the possibilities of drying clothes in the city since 2011 by observing communities and spaces around the area she lived in.

Winter faded and spring set in, bringing humid weather. Time to wash and dry the thick winter clothes and tuck them away.

Public space in the community could not facilitate the drying of laundry, a basic necessity for everyone.

But on the mountain right next to her living area, people dried their laundry, planted their veggie, changed the water flow and made their road.

The interaction between this basic necessity and the environment activated the Laundry Worker’s imagination towards the space in and of the mountain.

Doing laundry is ordinary but intimate.

The one who handle your clothes needs washing them diligently, drying them warmly, folding them tidily and putting them back to the wardrobe silently, with patience and care.

This specialist of doing laundry was always somewhere around.

Through repeating laundry work, the Laundry Worker focuses on handling some basic necessities in a few strangers’ daily life. This allows the Laundry Worker to imagine for the possibilities of freedom in the life of the city by staying in touch with water, sunshine, air and wind.

洗衣店 是一間位於銅鑼灣霎西街A3樓梯鋪。在2016年5月6日至 5月31日會化作為洗衣店,收集衣服清洗。收集的衣服會採用無患子洗衣液以人手清洗,然後在某個後山上晾曬。衣服晾乾後可以回洗衣店取回衣服。

洗衣者由2011年 – 《後山》的作品開始對晾曬衣服這事想像著。

《後山》 – 從洗衣者居住的社區開始觀察。










或許你自己就是這個洗衣員 . 晾曬員 . 摺衣員。
