1OOO LOST SOLES // WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Trash-Land-Art installation using 1000 shoes from the Ocean 
for Imagine Peace Festival 2015 


Here you can see an art-installation made from 1000 shoes washed ashore on beaches of South Lantau. In only 7 hours, 19 volunteers collected all of these shoes on three different shores. They originate from Mainland China as well as directly from Hong Kong. 
3 beaches + 19 volunteers + 7 hours = 1000 shoes! 
The lost shoes are not painted or changed in any other way: They are merely sorted by colour and arranged in a circle. Where are we going? //1000 Lost Soles is part of liina's trash-land-art series which she has been persuing since 2011. With her environmental installations liina hopes to create awareness to value more and waste less. These installations not only challenge our perception of art but also our behaviour as consumers and responsibility for nature.


我們的去向
1000雙漂浮海洋的鞋製作的垃圾山水裝置藝術
2015想像平和節展
你眼前的裝置藝術是由1000雙被沖上大嶼山南部沙灘的鞋所製成。僅於短短7小時,19名義工已從三個沙灘收集到這1000雙鞋子。它們有的經中國大陸水流沖至沙灘,有的來自港本地海上垃圾。這些被遺下的鞋子不經調色或修改,只是按顏色編織成一個彩色圓形,把本地海洋污染的問題活現眼前。自2011年,藝術家Liina已開始籌備垃圾山水系列中的新作品─我們的去向。她希望透過作品,向觀眾帶出珍惜.減廢的意識。這大膽的展品不但挑戰人們對藝術的固有看法,而且警惕大眾應在消耗用品的同時,不忘反思自己的消費行為和對大自然的應有責任。







萬物可以成為藝術,
藝術可以成就萬物。
敝屣或瑰寶?
細看小島再動腦,你會分辨到。
棄置或重視?
環境保護要及時,請放膽一試。


Anything can be art.
Art can be anything.
You decide wether it is waste or value.
The power lies in your perception!
You decide wether to waste or to value.
The power lies in your action!
