大台最近重播2008年的電視劇:「我嘅責任係維持治安,啲學生出嚟示威,都係為咗國家嘅好。試問我又點可以去拘捕佢哋呢?」 劇中那位軍人悲涼地說。

這句對白唐突,生硬,也不符合劇情,但戲劇組還是安排他硬生生地念著這句話。

2008年,距今快要十年了。這樣的對白,還會有嗎?

在這次展覽,你會見到一些陌生的攝影者。他們大多數是13+3的同路人,他們一直和抗爭者站在同一線上,相伴在旁,相機在手,快門記錄著一次又一次的社會行動,和行動者的日常。

在這次展覽,你也會見到一些很熟悉的攝影者。他們用作品回應時代,雖然手法各有不同,回應的方式也有不同的情感,或隱或現,或控訴或寄望,但都對事件高度關注。

我們也找來一些良心犯的家人,提供他們挑選的相片,希望能更立體地呈現他們的故事。

這也是一個未佈展完成的展覽。在這裏有筆,有報事貼,我們希望你可以把想對16位良心犯講的話,或者對展覽的感想,或者你們拍過的相關相片,直接貼在牆上的空位,我們會記錄好,交給他們。

我們見到,在很多角落,有很多不同範疇的人在默默地努力。2015年,也是大台的一套講辦公室政治的電視劇,演到一半,女主角突然面對鏡頭,握緊拳頭,堅定地說,「我哋要不怕强權,挑戰惡霸!因為民主同公義係我哋嘅核心價值,我哋唔可以輕易退卻!」

這次參與13+3的人也一樣,由籌備者到參展者,即使面對不同的局限,都希望盡一點力,只要多些人在不同的崗位盡一點力,總就會發生一點改變。

而且,世界上本來就沒有能離開社會的藝術,對嗎?

One TV Channel has recently rerun a TV drama from 2008. In one scenario, a soldier said in tears, “It’s my duty to maintain peace and order. The students take to the street for the good of the country, how can I arrest them?"

It’s been almost ten years. Will we hear something similar, again?

Some photographers in this exhibition might be unknown to you. They are the companions of the 13+3 in life and every fight. Always on the side of their fellows, these photographers captured the activists’ moments of action in protests and moments of everyday life.

You will also find works from photographers you know. Their works respond to social changes in various styles and methods. In obscurity or lucidity, with condemnation or hope, these photographs show pressing concerns for the events they witnessed.

Some works are provided by the families of these prisoners of conscience. These images allow us to get a fuller picture of the 13+3 as ordinary people like you and me.

This is also an unfinished exhibition. Please write down your thoughts for this exhibition or words for the 13+3, or some related photos, and post it onto the wall. We will collect the notes and deliver them to the 13+3.

We all strive for changes, however small they are, in different positions. In 2015, in another TV drama about office politics from that same TV company, an actress said in a scene: “Let’s not be afraid of the authority and fight against the oppressor! For the sake of democracy and justice, we cannot back off!"

Similarly, artists and producers of this exhibition wish to do whatever they can to make a difference in the reality, regardless of all limitations and setbacks.

In the end, art is inseparable from the society, right?
