Title: Same Line Twice 20 Dates: May 10 – May 12, 2020 Location: Hung Fai’s studio, Chai Wan Participants: Hung Fai, Wai Pong-yu, Alan Yeung Size: 70 x 138 cm Tools and materials: unsized xuan paper, black ink pens, metal rulers, glass paperweight Interaction: the artists and Alan Yeung engage in dialogue in various permutations
Curator Alan Yeung experiences the artists’ materials and process first-hand. First, Yeung and Hung draw Wai’s freehand lines following the latter’s demonstration. Then Yeung and Wai both draw Hung’s ruled lines. Lastly all three range freely across the entire sheet, engaging in a series of nested dialogues: Wai responds to Yeung’s imitation of his lines (which recall Wai’s own earlier, less practiced renditions), and Hung responds to Wai’s imitation of Yeung’s imitation of Hung himself, and so on. At one point, frustrated with sheer imitation and outmatched by the professionals, Yeung debases Wai’s curves into unruly squiggles and, to guard against Wai’s intrusions, turns his lines into self-enclosed spirals. The squiggles and spirals generate a torque to which the artists respond with more rotations for the rest of the composition, creating a void that none wants to fill until the end.
