Lam Tung-Pang Biography

Born in Hong Kong in 1978, Lam Tung-pang studied at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Central St. Martins College of Art, London. He currently lives in Hong Kong. A question he posed in 2011—'What does tradition mean today? How is it perceived and what does it contribute to our contemporary life?'—may be seen as the unifying characteristic of his varied practice in which references to classical tradition are subverted by commonplace objects and modern-day materials such as plywood replace silk or Xuan paper. As, such, Lam's process demonstrates how he oscillates between one aesthetic to another and integrates the different contradictory fluxes of a society in constant movement—journey and landscape are essential as passages between places and times, memories and dreams.
