The immersive video installation A day of two Suns (2019) by Hong Kong–based artist Lam Tung Pang (b. 1978) captures a changing Hong Kong. On both sides of a suspended diaphanous paper screen, unsynchronized images from four projectors combine with shadows of museum visitors, inviting us into an emotional landscape. “This work is prophetic and nostalgic,” notes Head of Contemporary Art Abby Chen about the newly acquired work. “It documents a city, and a system, in the process of fading and awakening.”

Unable to visit the Hong Kong House in-person, the artist relies on literary works, personal interviews, online information and other secondary sources to know more about Tsunan town, where the House is located. To underline the significance of imagination, Lam took a bold step to give the space a facelift with two different approaches. One half of the House now features text, music, graphics, moving images and other elements, arranged to conjure up an indoor landscape. In contrast, the neighbouring half is left completely empty—an intentional void with which Lam actively invites viewer’s imagination to complete the full picture.
In Lam’s opinion, the most captivating thing about having cultural exchange is the uncanniness arising from having a resonance which is not immediately clear to understand. It is only through imagination and active searching that we find what we look for.

「我們帶著半個認識的文化,去接觸另一半你不太熟悉的文化,文化交流最有趣之處,是這種有共鳴但不完全明白,靠着想象或找尋去發現。」 - 林東鵬,2021 “It’s about the convergence of the two ‘halves’. You come into contact with an unfamiliar culture and reflect on your own culture……this is the most interesting thing about having cultural exchange: you feel some sort of resonance, but you don’t fully understand what it is. It only gets clearer with your imagination and active searching.”

So long, thanks again for the fish / 8 Jun – 29 Aug, 2021/ Levyhalli, Suomenlinna B5, FI-00190 Helsinki, Finland
Stacks Image 220
Artists: Luke Ching Chin Wai, Christopher K. Ho, Lam Tung Pang, Cédric Maridet, Angela Su

So long, thanks again for the fish is the first group exhibition of Hong Kong artists in Finland and coincides with the inaugural event of the Helsinki Biennale. The show features new commissions by Luke Ching Chin wai, Christopher K. Ho, Lam Tung Pang, Cédric Maridet, and Angela Su. The title of the exhibition refers to the sci-fi classic of Hitchhiker’s Guide and takes from this series the absurdity of thinking of endings and beginnings as conclusive moments in cycles of change. In these imperfect times, where are the beginnings and endings?
In recent years, Hong Kong faced many social and political upheavals and changes. We also continue to face a global pandemic that impacts our health, our livelihoods, our borders and sense of community. But Hong Kong is not alone in experiencing an uncertain future. This exhibition, knowing that we are all somehow entangled, ask: Instead of utopian futures, should we be looking at the imperfect to recalibrate the stuff of survival? The selected five artists explore the theme of the necessity of being imperfect as a mode of survival and turn to their personal reflections on defiance, renewal and hope as the touchstones of their works. 
This show also takes as inspiration Anna Tsing’s The Mushroom at the End of the World and her proposal of collaborative survival. Tsing uses contaminations as encounters that unknowingly seep into and alter structures that can lead to diversity, and collaboration as a way of working across differences. The artworks see artists collaborating with singers, builders, writers, illustrators and code poets. Collectively, these artists, representing Hong Kong, seek unexpected connections and diversity by disrupting the historical site of Levyhalli on Suomenlinna, a UNESCO site with its rich history as a fortress island that has witnessed a long history of imperfect encounters.

After Hope: Videos of Resistance /From 1 Mar 2021 / Lee Gallery, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco
Stacks Image 198
Hope is an emotion that drives us to imagine, represent, and create new worlds. Designed as a set of three interrelated programs — an in-gallery presentation of more than 50 short videos from across Asia and the Asian diaspora (Videos of Resistance); a series of workshops, roundtable discussions, and convenings (International Working Group); and an online platform (AfterHope.com) — After Hope explores the role of hope in contemporary art and activism. This is the first in a series of programs produced in collaboration with outside curators and institutions that aims to foster artistic pollination across communities, practices, and perspectives. After Hope is co-organized with Padma D. Maitland, assistant professor of architectural history and theory at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

給玻璃窗鍍上一層影像。

《鍍影》,是一齣讓觀眾徘徊於實景與投影兩段時空的影像裝置創作。受香港藝術館三樓,面向維多利亞港的玻璃窗啟發,並以館藏(AH1964.0133) 無名畫家筆下十九世紀的維港及香港島作為創作藍本的錄像,從室內向窗戶投影,並慢慢與並置於敞大玻璃窗的室外景觀,構成兩座小島遙遙相對的景緻與對話。

歷史猶如眼鏡,給我們視角,而藝術則如鏡子,讓我們看見自己。

視覺藝術家林東鵬潛入《天工開物 · 栩栩如真》的文字工場,偷取作家董啟章在書桌上自言自語,審視V城的創作經驗,從而鋪陳一片由內向外,層層疊疊的風景。作品從書桌一角,擴展至家居平面圖,在宇宅來回之間,運用物件拼湊一片天地幻象,回應作家以「宀」部寫出 V城哭笑不得的時代特徵。

Spanning the 4m x 23m wall of The Park, Lam Tung Pang and COLLECTIVE's Wavy Weaving Wall takes inspiration from Hong Kong’s textile industrial history and the myriad stories of different individuals’ personal memories of a special piece of fabric in their lives. Mimicking fabric movements, the Wavy Weaving Wall, welcomes the visitors to listen to these recorded personal stories and be part of the continuous shaping of the artwork through regular interactive hands-on workshops.
