Installation work June Fourth Imprints
藝術家 | 陳清華
Artist | CHAN Ching-Wah
June Fourth Imprints was carved by CHEN Ching-Hue with a fit of emotion immediately after the Tiananmen Incident. The set of stamps not only showcases lines from YE Wen-Fu’s poem General, You Cannot Do That but also the names of the 31 people who were connected to the 1989 Democracy Movement. The poetry workshop released the book version of these carvings in 1995, and CHEN wrote in the foreword of the book: "I am soothing these souls with the art of carving."
This work was displayed at The Fringe Club and Hong Kong Federation of Students Social Movement Resource Centre. In 2019, at the invitation of 9 Songs supporter Lenny KUO, this intimately poetic work rich with humanistic connection will be individually suspended and displayed in small separate cages made with metal wires, physically participating in the exhibition.
