(編按:大批示威者 7 月 1 日衝擊立法會大樓,期間有部份裝置於大樓內的藝術品遭受破損。一群參與「藝術在立法會」之藝術家今日(7 日)發表公開信,表示藝術與市民的聲音,均是香港「不可或缺的部分」,呼籲當權者尊重生命,接納香港人的訴求。全文轉載如下。)

一群參與《藝術在立法會》之藝術家
致香港市民及香港特區政府之公開信:

逃犯條例修訂近日引起香港市民憂慮,可惜香港政府接二連三漠視民意,過百萬人大遊行後仍得不到政府確切回應,及後數萬示威者於 2019 年 7 月 1 日自發包圍並佔領立法會,向政府進一步施壓。

其中立法會綜合大樓安裝或放置了由本地藝術家原創的藝術作品。根據立法會於 2009 年起開展的蒐羅藝術作品計劃:「立法會認為藝術是香港這個充滿活力及生氣勃勃的國際城市不可或缺的部分。」我們乃是其中部分藝術品的創作者,我們認為除了藝術,市民的聲音以及對自由的捍衛和追求,更是香港「不可或缺的部分」。

立法會內的藝術品以至部分設施的損毀,是可以被復原的,但年輕一代、學生們的生命,和對世道抱持的信心,是決不能失去的。當年輕示威者用盡一切理性文明方式,一再展現驚人的創意和韌力,換來的卻只有當權者的麻木不仁;藝文工作者當彰顯人性、啟蒙文明、守護人文精神實乃責無旁貸,且讓各位與眾並肩前行,一同建設和守護屬於眾人的香港。

我們在此再次懇求當權者尊重生命,接納香港人和年輕人的訴求。

An open letter to Hong Kong Citizens and HKSAR Government
from participating artists in “Art in LegCo”

The proposed bill regarding extradition to amend the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance has caused concern among the people of Hong Kong. Over a million people marched on the street, but the HKSAR Government has repeatedly ignored the demands of the people. On 1 July 2019, tens of thousands of protestors spontaneously occupied the Legislative Council, putting further pressure on the government.

Artworks created by local Hong Kong artists are installed in the Legislative Council Complex. According to the Legislative Council's Art Acquisition Project which started in 2009, “The Legislative Council (the "LegCo") considers that Art is a significant part of a vibrant and dynamic international city like Hong Kong”. We are the creators of some of these artworks. We think apart from art, the voice of the public, and the defense and pursuit of freedom are even more significant parts of Hong Kong.

Damage to artworks and facilities in the Legislative Council can be restored, but the younger generation, the lives of the students and their confidence in the world can never be lost. When the young protestors exhausted all rational and civilized ways to protest, they demonstrated amazing creativity and resilience. What they have in exchange is the insensitivity of those in power. Art and cultural workers shall manifest humanity, enlighten insights, enrich civilization, and keep with the spirit of humanism. We walk with the people to build and protect Hong Kong.

Once again, we call on the authority to respect life and respond to the demand of Hong Kong Citizens and that of the young people.
