Title: Same Line Twice 19 Dates: May 1 – May 5, 2020 Location: Hung Fai’s studio, Chai Wan Participants: Hung Fai, Wai Pong-yu Size: 70 x 138 cm Tools and materials: unsized xuan paper, black ink pens, metal rulers, paper sculptures Interaction: the artists sit on opposite sides of the paper and proceed from one short end to the other sequentially
The artists return to the bipartite composition, but with a twist. Before starting to draw, Hung and Wai each write a positive and a negative memory on two slips of xuan paper and then exchange one of the slips with the other artist (without indicating whether it is positive or negative). Each then materializes and fuses the two memories by turning the slips into a paper sculpture, which anchors the subsequent drawing with imagistic and affective associations. Wai makes a compact, circular well and places a star inside it, introducing the themes of solidity, reclusion, and darkness and light; Hung makes a loose bouquet of flowers, inflecting his lines with feelings of pursuit and remorse. Indeed, Hung’s lines consistently push up against Wai’s despite the stark vertical boundary set by the latter. In the final passages, Wai wets and darkens the paper to an extreme and repeatedly punctures it with his pen, acts that for Hung have the tenor of rejection and departure.
