Title: Same Line Twice 18 Dates: July 23 – July 27, 2019 Location: Hung Fai’s studio, Chai Wan Participants: Hung Fai, Wai Pong-yu Tools and materials: unsized xuan paper; black and color ink pens; metal rulers Size: 70 x 138 cm Interaction: the artists frequently interrupt and extend each other’s passages. Wai’s introduces color, which Hung modulates with ink lines. They sometimes reverse their roles, with Wai drawing blue lines with a ruler and Hung Fai drawing free-hand dots and curves.
“At the left center Pong-yu (P) begins to draw lines that billow like endless waves. The fine white spaces between them are shimmering memories.
“Then, next to these lines, Hung Fai (H) begins to mark dots, which gradually accumulate into sandy fields and then extend into rivers that engender new lines. By contrast, Pong-yu’s dots are dark and dense, like islands carving out jagged, narrow paths.
“Against the ocean of Pong-yu’s curves, Hung Fai draws straight ruled lines. Along these repressive, repetitive trajectories, his hand leaves behind ink dots light and heavy. Responding to the paper’s moisture and the pressure applied by the finger, the ink dots diffuse into unique patterns resembling a field of wild grass. The encounter between Pong-yu’s lines and mine is a collision of tectonic plates, giving rise suddenly to a mountain range.
“A billowing ocean woven with silk threads; a snaking river formed by grains of ink. Dots become islands that carve out jagged paths. A field of grass and a sea join as a mountain; the movements of stars become ripples and waves… We constantly change our forms, switching from one state to another to find new meaning. We respond to, interpret, and confront each other in a perpetually varying dialogue.”
