識我條鐵 A Bit of Iron(y)
Hui Gallery & 2/F, Cheng Ming Building, New Asia College, CUHK
The Chinese word “鐵”, translated as “iron”, has recently become a frequently used slang word in Hong Kong. It originated from an internet discussion forum as a cipher for a less family-friendly word that would undoubtedly be censored.
“…, what the iron would I know” has come to express one’s lack of knowledge (or in most cases, lack of interest) towards a specific subject. We feel that the general lack of interest can be particularly strong when ‘art’ becomes the subject, and this attitude towards the unfamiliar is often disparaging in our city.
“A Bit of Iron(y)” is a group exhibition featuring Year One MA students coming from diverse educational backgrounds. Drawing from personal experiences and responses to contemporary issues, the participating students are questioning the general disinterest and asking why we care and why we make.
