Dreadful pro-Beijing DAB politician Chan Kam-lam reckons that art in HK should be censored, believing that works such as Tiananmen by Ai Wei Wei have no place at the upcoming contemporary art museum, Mobile+.
The SCMP reported that Chan said that “Works that are indecent, vulgar, political and insulting are not works of art”. As a response to this viewpoint – a re-dedication ceremony took place yesterday at the Cultural District, where a giant inflatable pile of dog shit was renamed in his honour. Permanent signage was erected to inform visitors of the new commemoration…
The pile of shit has a lot in common with Chan Kam-lam – not only does he talk a lot of crap, but both of them are full of hot air and lacking in intellect.
It is not the only dubious accolade Chan received this year… He also happens also to be the laziest lawmaker in LEGCO. In February, it was reported that he had not initiated one single question or tabled a motion since the Legislative Council resumed last October.
By closing time last night, security and volunteers at the site were happy to leave the tribute to Mr Chan in place.
