「香港膠質生活」Laminated Life

香港膠質生活 – 塑膠製品與老香港生活

想起「塑膠」,你會想起李嘉誠如何靠「黐膠花」掘到第一桶金?陳寶珠攜著駱駝牌飯壺高歌「工廠妹萬歲」?或是制水時期,家家戶戶挽著紅A膠水桶,大嗌「樓下閂水喉」?除了以上經典場面之外,其實塑膠製品從五、六十年代開始,已經逐漸進駐香港人的生活每個部份。

廉價、輕身、模仿能力強,以上種種特質都使塑膠製品無孔不入,從洗手間內的牙刷、漱口杯,到客廳中的燈罩、桌椅,不知不覺間,我們彷彿進入了塑膠生活的年代。

灣仔民間生活館今期展覽特別以「塑膠」為題,探索這種可塑性極高的原材料,如何與香港人一起經歷半個世紀的生活變遷。

展覽日期: 5月至8月
展覽開幕: 9/5/2009, 3pm-4pm
