Artwork statement:
Observing every scratch in images found in the streets, we can find some inside stories behind the visual images. I repair the destroyed images for the purpose of responding to these stories.

About the artwork:
Whenever we see a banner of councilor being scratched or damaged, we may have snigger on it because of the “funny additive” added on the images. The scars on faces, cracks on teeth and the missing eyes are what we can commonly observe from the victimized image or banners.

Someone will just treat this phenomenon as a foolish prank and passes away. I think, however, it is a quite interesting subject matter by reading the scratches.
They, mostly strangers, create a narration onto the banner. I believe every scratch on banner have their own stories, which are related to both the one who scratched and the one who being scratched.

What I am going to do is not investigating the intention and behavior of those who create the narration. On the contrary, I try to project the stories behind each scratch by repairing them. Afterwards audience with different political and educational background may have advanced interpretation about the scratches based on my repairing.
I collect and repair the destroyed images to expose and to introspect the implied stories to the audience.

About Artist:
Roger received his bachelor degree in Visual Arts in Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2010. Though operating with a non-sense and illogical mind, Roger observes everything clear. Roger likes to work with Image editing, the absurd existing in society is one of the major content of his work.
