城市的面貌隨著發展不停更替，一座座建築物經歷著新陳代謝。有些透過修復存活下來，有些被拆掉後重建，還有一些逐漸被遺忘的閒置空間: 例如荃灣美港貨倉，觀塘九巴廠等。這些空間曾為香港工業起飛的要員、人們日常出入的場所; 基於種種不同的原因它們不能被觸碰及活用，並不知不覺地成為我們生活中輕易略過的場境。
成立於2011, 「空城計劃」(EmptySCape) 以研究和介入香港的閒置空間為宗旨, 希望透過藝術行動，重新打開這些地方的故事，從而探索和重塑這些空間的可能性與關聯脈絡。我們期望能開拓香港公共領域的論述及實踐, 並開闊公眾對「被規劃」的現代公共空間以外、其他空間類型的認知和想像。
It is a common cycle in the built environment that some buildings get knocked down and rebuilt, whilst some get restored to retain its body, whilst some get abandoned and quietly sits in every other corners of the city. For whatever reasons behind it’s uninhibitedness, the emptied space got forgotten, idled and sometimes misused.
Established in 2011 by a group of multi-discplinary profession, EmptySCape aims to go in search, reveal the stories and characteristics of emptyscape. We would like to the possibilities to re-use, re-represent, reinterpret these spaces through art intervention. We hope to reveal to the public the characters of these typologies of both private and public emptied spaces and what roles do they play within the city and how are these spaces were related to the city and people.
