"When the mountain hangs the clothes"


The Laundry Worker has been imagining the possibilities of drying clothes in the city since 2011 by observing communities and spaces around the area she lived in.
 

Winter faded and spring set in, bringing humid weather. Time to wash and dry the thick winter clothes and tuck them away.
 

Public space in the community could not facilitate the drying of laundry, a basic necessity for everyone.
 

But on the mountain right next to her living area, people dried their laundry, planted their veggie, changed the water flow and made their road.
 

The interaction between this basic necessity and the environment activated the Laundry Worker’s imagination towards the space in and of the mountain.
 

Doing laundry is ordinary but intimate.

洗衣者由2011年 – 《後山》的作品開始對晾曬衣服這事想像著。

 


《後山》 –  從洗衣者居住的社區開始觀察。
回南天,潮濕的天氣。把御寒衣物洗好、晾曬、風乾。
社區內公共空間的規劃沒有好好顧及晾曬衣服這基本需要,
而在社區邊的一個後山上,
居民在那裡晾曬衣服,種菜,山上引水,搭石引路。
人與自然之間有機的互動,開放了大家對於空間的想像。

洗衣服,曬衣服是件很貼心的事。
也是最習以為常的事,家裡總會有這一位專為衣服處理的一人。
這人總會把衣服洗好,晾曬好,摺疊好。放到衣服的原位。
可能你家裡沒有這人,也許拎去洗衣店交給一位洗衣專員去處理。
或許你自己就是這個洗衣員 . 晾曬員 . 摺衣員。


重覆的洗衣動作,洗衣員專注地處理某個眾數的生活基本。
在城市中保持與水、太陽、空氣、風的觸感,

想像在城市居住的自由生活形態。
