《消失的香港藝術(三)》是一組被鋸碎的玻璃鋼材質的大碗。藝術家早年參與香港一條農村的改造過程,將經驗化成創作,並以碗的造形作為載體,承載城鄉生活共存的理念。作品原本計劃於一次公共藝術群展展出。但是開幕當天由於項目負責人與場館方面產生的分歧,導致展覽在未開放公眾參觀前剎停,作品在公共空間的圍欄內存放了12小時之後撤展。這次出人意料的溝通崩潰對林東鵬產生了很大的影響。他親眼目睹了整個事件戲劇化的經過,一方面對雙方各不相讓的態度感到驚訝,但另一方面又體會到他們各自雙方的苦衷,這令他直接感受到內心世界裡存在的各種矛盾。作品最後運回藝術家工作室,林東鵬決定將大碗割成碎片,納入他當時正在發展的《消失的香港藝術》系列,並寫下:當處境改變,藝術也被改變。
藝術家將這件「被消失」的作品存放在香港的貨櫃碼頭三年半,至二零一七年展出。

Disappeared HK Art 3 is a set of large fiberglass Chinese bowls that have been sawed apart. Earlier in his life, the artist participated in a project reforming the villages in Hong Kong, and transformed this experience into an artwork. The form of bowls was used as a carrier to convey the concept of coexistence of urban and rural life. The work was originally planned to be exhibited at a public art installation, however on the opening day, there was a disagreement between the project leader and the venue, leading to the exhibition being cancelled even before it was open to the public. The works were installed and stored for 12 hours before being dismantled. The unexpected collapse of communication has had a great impact on Lam Tung-pang. As he witnessed firsthand the dramatic unfolding of events, he was struck by the uncompromising stances of the two sides; and yet, being able to empathize with the opposing viewpoints of each side, he became immediately aware of the conflicting views that existed within himself. After the work was returned to his studio, he decided to saw the large bowls into pieces and include it in his Disappeared Hong Kong series, with his writing “when situation changes, so does art.”

The artist stored this “disappeared” piece in Kwai Tsing Container Terminals, Hong Kong for three and a half years, until it was exhibited at Chambers Fine Art in 2017.
