Limited edition color photocopy, 100 editions

When I found this page having my friend Lee Kit’s artwork on it with the interesting comment on the memo, which was torn from the Para/Site Art Space’s auction catalogue, I then kept it. A year later, Para/Site Art Space invited me to donate an artwork for their fundraising auction, I photocopied this page with the note in color, I set the edition number to 100, the first edition was given to them, and suggested to sell it for HK$ 100. Later, I was told that the piece was set to bid from HK$ 1,000, their staff Wendy bought it for HK$ 1,000, I then voluntarily offered her to choose another piece of my works, which would be for free.

當我看到這從Para/Site藝術空間拍賣目錄撕下的一頁上是我的朋友李傑的作品,以及附著的便條上有趣的評語,就把它保存下來。一年後,Para/Site藝術空間邀請我捐贈一件作品作籌款拍賣,我就把這頁拍賣目錄連同上面的便條作彩色影印,影印版本訂為一百個,第一個版本就給了他們,並建議售價為港幣100元。後來我得知該作品被訂價從港幣1,000元起拍,空間的職員Wendy用1,000元買下,我就主動跟她說她可以從我的作品中再選一件,我會免費送贈給她。
