Pak Sheung Chuen

1 September 2016

Hong Kong

The interdisciplinary artist Pak Sheung Chuen – whose work spans performance, photography, installation, and sculpture – is attuned to the inherent absurdity in everyday life; for one work, he took a five-day trip to Malaysia, keeping his eyes closed for the duration but taking photographs so he could discover the country on his return home. For Pak, such actions reveal the assumptions  that structure our daily lives – so it is appropriate that he drew public attention to his work in a weekly column in the newspaper Ming Pao from 2003–07. In 2009, the artist represented Hong Kong at the Venice Biennale.
