去性別化後的英雄 | A DE-GENDERED HERO : ZE/RO

英雄,超群出眾、作出巨大貢獻的人,英文是: Hero,其中的「He」像是代表英雄就是男性的專利。牛津英語詞典為中性的第三方訂立了新詞彙「Ze」,令Hero以後或可叫做Zero,而英雄再無男女之別。布朗畫廊於7至8月在香港空間呈獻「Ze/Ro」展覽,說明女性如何從思想和身體體現自己在社會上的價值。

Hero refers to people who are outstanding or made a great contribution to the people. However, the “He” in the word seems to represent being hero is the privilege of male.

西區公眾貨物裝卸區近年以「港版天空之鏡」之名在社交媒體上一舉成名,人群蜂擁而至到此「打卡」,因此也被譽爲Instagram Pier,但很不幸地本年年初碼頭宣佈封閉。四年前旅居香港的Pierfrancesco Celada忽爾發現到這個地方,並為這個轟動一時的拍照聖地留下了近三萬張倩影。

The Western Public Cargo Working Area has sprung into fame on social media in recent years as “Hong Kong’s version of the mirror in the sky”. Since then, crowds flocked to the pier to take pictures for the Instagram. Therefore, the pier is named as the “Instagram Pier”as well but it was unfortunately closed earlier this year. Four years ago, Pierfrancesco Celada, who was living in Hong Kong, discovered the place and took nearly 30, 000 pictures of it.
