Inheritance of history, from general continuation of communities, culture and space; to preservation of abandoned architecture; to reappearance of relics; to backtracking of historical photographs; till there is nothing left. In the current crowded concrete jungle, every inch of land carries a trace of history, but is eventually shattered in the passage of time.
Being constantly chased, the current moment chooses to forget the past and the present. Ambiguous impressions of history are deeply implanted inside the body. Facing the city scenery, wandering along the famous Hollywood Road, can we see the ocean via the frozen window? The coastline has gone. Alice has left. Then where are you going to?
Tang Kwok Hin
Tang Kwok-hin, mixed media artists, Master of Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008, first prize winner at Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Award 2009, 2013 Asian Cultural Council grantee. Tang starts the artistic path from continuous queries towards his native background; soon he has developed exploration towards origins of existence and intimate aesthetics, inseparably connecting to the course and experiences of his life. These concerns are reflected in his works. He blurs boundaries between art and living by integrating creation with conflicts of human kinds which reveals intrinsic values. He often appropriates and reconstructs daily and personal contexts to narrate hidden stories in life, dealing with growth, inheritance, freedom, capitalism, consumerism, nature, politics, norms, etc., to express concerns towards humans and surroundings.
