二零零八年一月二日,我從香港到達北京的工作室。除了到附近買食物及創作所需物料外,其餘時間都在工作室裡渡過,每天約廿二小時。這隔絕的二十天裡,在工作室可容納的長度內‭(‬約八點二米‭)‬的板面上畫山的形象,之後用橡皮擦去,最後將擦拭過程的痕跡及橡皮屑及塵埃等封住在板上。

零七年我四次來到北京預備工作室,最初這個計劃的念頭源自於表達我將「創作的信念帶到北京」這一行徑。計劃中,山的形象應該被橡皮擦去大部份而餘下微弱的痕跡。不過到最後發現,在整個「行為」完成後,封存痕跡的光油將餘下的炭粉深深地沉入木板之中,山的形象被柔軟的橡皮「擦去」後仍剩餘清晰的輪廓,移山者,愚公也?

In 2nd Jan 2008‭, ‬I travelled from Hong Kong to‭ ‬my studio in‭ ‬Beijing‭. ‬Apart from buying food and art materials nearby‭, ‬I spent 22‭ ‬hours a day in‭ ‬the‭ ‬studio‭. ‬In the 20‭ ‬days of isolation from the surroundings‭, ‬I draw an image of mountain on 8.4m long panel‭ (‬the possible length of my studio‭) ‬and then erased the drawing‭. ‬The dust and marks made during the erasing are sealed on the panels‭.‬

I came to Beijing 4‭ ‬times in 2007‭ ‬for preparing‭ ‬the‭ ‬studio‭. ‬The concept of this piece‭ ‬comes from the idea of‭ ‬“Bringing my faith in art to Beijing”‭. ‬In the planning‭, ‬the image of mountain supposed remain little and blurred‭. ‬In fact‭, ‬the shape of mountain was even getting clearer while I was sealing the surface‭, ‬did Faith moves Mountain…‭?‬
