Pak Sheung Chuen, Street, Court and Prison

Exposition personnelle
Pak Sheung Chuen
gb agency, Paris
1er Décembre 2018 - 12 Janvier 2019


Le travail de Pak Sheung Chuen (HK, 1967) est basé sur l’intime conviction de l’artiste qu’à travers ses œuvres il peut rendre visible l’imbrication de la réalité et de l’imaginaire. Son œuvre reflète souvent le Hong Kong contemporain à travers des observations personnelles et un engagement intellectuel traitant aussi bien du quotidien dans cette ville que du conflit entre un monde idéal et la réalité, conflit auquel il propose des solutions poétiques dans le but de concilier ces deux mondes.

After two solo shows at Para Site, Hong Kong and Vitamin Creative Space, Guangzhou, this exhibition shows the latest developments of a process of self-healing after the failure of the Umbrella Movement, a civil-desobedience movement which took over the downtown streets of Hong Kong in the end of 2014. Attending specific cases about political activists who were being prosecuted by the government, Pak Sheung Chuen made automatic drawings during the trials. These drawings acted as a starting point for these series of works, which addresses the relationship between state power and the individual in a situation where freedom of speech is under pressure.
