Pak Sheung Chuen

Pak Sheung Chuen was born in 1977 in Fujian, he lives and works in Hong Kong.

His work is based on the artist’s belief that through his artworks he can bring to the fore the interwoven nature of reality and the imaginary. His works often reflect upon contemporary Hong Kong, his home town since early childhood, through personal observations and conceptual engagement with everyday life as well as on the conflict between an ideal world and reality.

The works of Pak Sheung Chuen are transient in, or barely passing through the institutions of the art world: they are conceived, developed and carried out at its edges. Their raw materials - everyday affairs and situations, no matter how unremarkable- redefine nonetheless the role of the audience. Everything is in motion: ideas are translated into text which becomes the basis of a dialogue, which then takes form in space. The works are of the here and now. Pak Sheung Chuen manufactures the very space of his work, and instigates an encounter that triggers reflection. Though it doesn’t leave a trace, the work is developed on-site, thus creating its own context.
