Grass Mud Horse 草泥馬

Grass Mud Horse 草泥馬

Mainland Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was arrested and detained by the Chinese Government. Art community members in Hong Kong felt this is not right so we organized a public protest, participated by 2,000 people, calling for the immediate release of Ai Weiwei. ‘Grass Mud Horse’ is a work inspired by a photograph done by Ai Weiwei and the sub-text is extremely powerful (it sounds like ‘fxck your mother’ in Putonghua). There are four wheels underneath the ‘Grass Mud Horse’. When it reached the Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui I rode on top and gave a speech.  Many V for Vendetta masked followers were attracted by this protest artwork during the protest.

內地藝術家艾未未受到中央禁固,香港藝術界覺得這樣打壓藝術言論自由很不當,發起了一個約二千人的集會遊行,口號是釋放艾未未。「草泥馬」雕塑的語言象徵性非常之強,大家都知道它其實是一句粗口,也讓人聯想到艾未未的相片作品。「草泥馬」下面有四個轆,遊行時我拖著它走。到達了尖沙咀文化中心我便騎在它上面發表演說,非常穩固也是「V煞仔」的至愛。
