How not to forget history? Wai-leung Lai turns to the concrete contribution of an object-based approach in installation art, following up on his last piece on the show Mending Years to assert the place of the non-expert in completing an art event as a form of social commemoration. 據點作者黎偉亮要求「歷史毋忘」要具體，也許在以「物」為軸的場域特定展覽《縫補歲月》中，他找到了裝置藝術所盛載的一點貢獻。
FP writer Wai-leung Lai visited group "Mending Years" as sounds from the past collaged to invoke contradicting thoughts about the 1960s and 1970s. Is there a single reading of the past? He starts with Linda Lai's "Domestic Moonlighting," Wong Kar-wai's films and more. 「據點」作者黎偉亮徐步於「縫補歲月」的五人展場中，聲頻片段拼貼湊合的氛圍喚起的是矛盾不一的記憶與論述。到底上世紀六七十年代是怎樣的？真能客觀定斷嗎？先由黎肖嫻的《家居副業》和王家衛等說起。
Taking her work as an open-journey in progress, Winsome Wong's "Blanks in the Pictures" are partially filled her father’s writings which take her to new discovery. Her response to father’s piece...黃慧心的《照片的空白》因著父親的寫作而豐滿了？發問的行動和帶關注的好奇心，刷新了黃慧心的創作模式。唸完父親的述說，對父親、祖父母和一九六零年代有了新的感觸。
To fill in the almost unconquerable blank spaces of her grand parents' days through the 1960s-80s, Winsome Wong asked her father to write what he remembers, a precious piece to add to the puzzles of Hong Kong's so-calle “golden age” of manufacturing industries. 為了填補照片和家常對話所留下的空白，黃慧心發現最好的下一步是請當年寫文章了得的父親去紀錄他的父母親的軼事，呈現的不單是她祖母模糊不解的過去，更是香港上世紀六十到八十年代小市民掙扎著活下去的面貌的清晰碎片。
Recollection of family members are too fragmentary for Winsome Wong to piece together a wholesome understanding of her father, grandparents and the times they struggled through in the 1960s-80s, when she was not yet born. She turned the blank spaces into a journey of research and conversations, and the quest for photographic truths. 出生於祖父母和父輩掙扎成長之後的黃慧心，無法從他們口中得知1960-80年代的他們和香港的實際存在。如何填補這個空白？於是她先由他們以前工作的地方開始，然後透過與爺爺翻看在他和嫲嫲家中家庭照片…。感謝照片和照相機的存在。
[Mending Years 縫補歲月] Domestic Moonlighting (2023) adapts a work commissioned for the 9th Shanghai Biennale (2012-13). In the current iteration, Linda Lai highlights domestic moonlighting by women and children in HK in the 1960s-80s, estimated to value at postal volume of 57.5 million kg for RMB94.7 million, sent from Hong Kong to China. 《家居副業》（2023）。黎肖嫻的郵政考察顯示出上世紀六十到八十年代期間，香港婦女和小孩的家居副業從香港向中國支援，投遞了約五千七百五十萬公斤的小郵包物資，郵資總值九千四百七十萬人民幣。還有...
[Mending Years 縫補歲月] Curator Ying-chi Tang sees the present in the 5 stories of the past that harp back onto the 1960s-1970s, arguing that the public and domestic are integrally one, as the artists in the group show present. 策展人鄧凝姿眼中的「縫補歲月」不單是上世紀的六七十年代，也是構成今天的一部份；透過五位創作者的視野，她看見公共領域和家居細活之間的千絲萬縷。
[Mending Years 縫補歲月] Elaine Wong recalls her Mom listening to Shirley Kwan's “A Solo Song” alone in the dark, and finds the same sentiment in a line sung by Cantonese opera diva Fong Yim-fun, “I've done nothing wrong, why am I suffering?” – which speaks of many grass-root females's mind in the 1970s. 黃淑賢的媽媽喜歡唱歌，偏偏聲帶出狀況，發不了高音。有一段日子，她經常獨個兒在漆黑的客廳坐在沙發上，播放着關淑怡的《一首獨唱的歌》，令她想起七十年代草根女性愛聽的芳艷芬的一段細訴：「今生我無做錯 何以何以累我受此折磨。」
