A Fence is a boundary and a symbol of prohibition. In Hong Kong, there is always a curious situation where lawns and other public art are fenced off from people – you can see them, but you can’t reach them. It is also easy to find signs that tell you what not to do.

Prohibition makes management easy, but it also takes away the fundamental meaning of public space.

Fence-off is an installation that investigates this fine line between prohibition and public space.
