Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017. Since then, much has changed, including the hand-painted signs that punctuate the journey from the airport to the city centre, which today do not celebrate the revolution so much as the 'Unidad y...

Lam Tung-Pang

b. 1978, China

Lam Tung Pang (b.1978, Hong Kong) is a mixed-media artist primarily known for his large-scale paintings and drawings on plywood. A founding member of the Fotanian artist collective, which includes his contemporaries Chow Chun-fai and Wilson Shieh, Lam’s work addresses the challenges of surviving as a creative force within a commerce-driven Asian metropolis. Using materials both traditional (oil, acrylic, charcoal, pencil) and non-traditional (nails, sand, plywood), Lam explores unconventional relationships between objects and materials. The plywood painting in this exhibition, similar to the piece showcased at Art Basel Hong Kong 2018, blends styles of East and West and, through the rawness of the 'dead' material, comments viscerally upon human destruction of the natural world.

Lam received the ACC Fellowship in Visual Arts (2012), the Best Artist Award from the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards (2013), the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Award (2009) and the Sovereign Asian Art Prize (2006). His work has been the subject of major solo shows including I was once here, Klein Sun Gallery, New York, NY (2016); Play, Espace Louis Vuitton, Hong Kong (2014); The Curiosity Box, Chinese Cultural Center of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA (2013); Past Continuous Tense, Goethe-Institute, Hong Kong (2012) and Lam Tung Pang: First Step, Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester, UK (2006). He has also exhibited in group shows worldwide, including at Artistree, Hong Kong (2013); Tate Modern, London, UK (2010); Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China (2010); and Royal College of Art, London, UK (2005). His work is collected by M+ Museum, Hong Kong; Burger Collection, Hong Kong; K11 Art Foundation, China; and Deutsche Bank, Frankfurt, Germany.
