Chung Chang-Sup's solo show at Axel Vervoordt, Hong Kong, presents his exploration into 'tak', a natural material from Korea's indigenous mulberry tree.

Through this material, Chung contemplates Korean identity, having grown up in Korea in the years following the Japanese occupation. The artist played a key role in the Dansaekhwa movement of 1970s South Korea.⁠
