In our international internship programme 2020-2021, a team of 11 undergraduate students have been selected to work with Art Promotion Office and the artist Lam Tung Pang on the Hong Kong House project at Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale 2021. Our student interns will share their thoughts on this platform, partly as documentations of their internship experience, but partly as seeds that may grow and spark ideas in the creative process itself.

‘Construction’ of the Half-step House: the Artist at Work!

April 12, 2021|Tags: , |

On March 31, Tung Pang was working with his favorite material – plywood. As he said in a 2012 documentary by the Art Promotion Office, unlike how paint only lies on the surface of the canvas, plywood can allow the color to permeate while showing its texture and grain [...]

Typography and Cultural Intersections: A Case Study on Neon Genesis Evangelion (Part One)

April 7, 2021|Tags: , |

A Glimpse Into An Artist’s Inner Mind

March 22, 2021|Tags: , |

Having studied art history for four years, I am used to learning about artworks created faraway from contemporary times, and to hear about artists’ ideas based on existing studies by renowned art critics. The studio visit was the first time for me to delve into the curating process of [...]

Ideas, Words, and Songs Jumbled Together

March 22, 2021|Tags: , |

Apart from being a visit to Tung Pang’s studio, the occasion doubled as a visit into Tung Pang’s mind. It was mesmerising to see the artist’s meditations all arranged on a table, especially in the warehouse environment of the studio. One could almost see ideas sprawling out of each [...]

Sally’s Visit to Lam Tung Pang’s Studio

March 22, 2021|Tags: , |

Studio visit is without doubt the most exclusive of art experiences. I was thrilled to bits when offered the opportunity to be one of those privileged few to pull back the curtain and have an up-close glimpse of where the magic happens. The actual visit went above and beyond my [...]

Leah’s Visit to Lam Tung Pang’s Studio

March 22, 2021|Tags: , |

It was such a pleasure to be invited to Mr. Lam Tung Pang’s studio. As an art history student, I encounter finished artworks all the time, but rarely do I have the chance to actually engage in the on-going process of art making. And so, the way Tung Pang [...]
