Hi! Houses. Law Uk Folk Museum (2017)

Hi! Houses - Law Uk, a collaboration with artist Fiona Wong and several fellow ceramic artists and practitioners in making a contemporary art installation in Law Uk. Law Uk is a Hakka village house dating back more than 200 years ago, the only remaining example of a village house from the old villages in Chai Wan.  The ceramic installation in the kitchen of Law Uk is inspired by the traditional Hakka dish "salt baked chicken (客家古法鹽焗雞)", applying quasi cooking processes and materials in making the ceramic pieces.

戇牯窰仔歌

戇牯窰仔自家煲,洗淨米來火又烏,窰頭焗個鹽土雞,火旺鹽巴響劈啪,燒出陶雞硬確確

窰仔咬磞大板牙,半月十日肚凹凹,風吹陶雞片片飄,喊雞毋轉枉心機,從此灶頭生草鑊生鑥
