Auntie Big’s Backyard (2009)
Defying the rigid and monumental image of outdoor sculpture, Auntie Big’s Backyard situates the audience to enter the fantasy of the land of giants. Three out of sequence Mahjong tiles are found amongst the rock bed along the coast between the Repulse Bay and the Clear Water Bay. The blown out of scale 20″ by 12″ by 9″ everyday objects, the 1 Bamboo, 2 Bamboo and 8 Bamboo are scattered along with a bed of artificial rocks as if it is the backyard of Auntie Big’s party house. The playful site-specific installation engages the audience to appreciate nature and humors its artificiality with a ceramic tile bird (1 Bamboo), two columns of bamboo (2 Bamboo) and two bamboo shelters (8 Bamboo).
