Enoch CHEUNG 張康生

簡介 Biography

Enoch Cheung obtained Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) and Master of Fine Art degree (majoring in Painting) co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School. He also received a Master degree of art from the UK and a Master degree in interactive media from the Netherlands. He has been involved in many multi-disciplinary projects and is interested in exploring the new perspectives of different mediums and their concepts. For instance, he initiated Pseudo Collection – What do artists collect in 2016 – a curatorial project to investigate the idea of ‘Artists as collectors’ and the meanings of collecting in the field of art. 

Cheung is currently a PhD candidate in Translation, Interpreting and Inter-cultural study. His research is focusing on intersemiotic relations in contemporary art and art writings.

張康生分別取得澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學藝術學士及碩士學位,並於英國和荷蘭取得藝術碩士及互動媒體碩士。熱衷參與跨媒介創作,並思考展覽與藝術的創意去探索不同媒介的可塑性,例如發起《偽‧集藝─藝術人的收集物》展覽去討論收集與收藏行為對藝術家的意義。他現為翻譯、傳譯及跨文化研究系的博士研究生,研究當代藝術作品與藝術書寫的符際關係。

Looking back at the course of my creative career and teaching, even though I have been touching upon different media and disciplines, I have never given up on ‘Painterly’. My understanding of the term is my starting point, which has extended to affect my attitudes, concept and vision.

回望創作及教學歷程,即使涉獵不同媒介、科目,但離不開對Painterly的堅持。我對該詞的理解,並以此為出發點,再伸延至態度、觀念及視野。

The overlapping of reality, memory and recurring dreams is a popular subject in art. The word ‘dreaming’, however, has derived from a new context since 2019. It has impacted my sensory memory of this city, ranging from weird to absurd, lingering in my mind and running around in my blood.

現實、記憶與夢境的交疊,算是十分常見的題材。自從二零一九年以後,「發夢」在新的語境下別具意義,亦衝擊著我對我城的感官記憶。由詭異到荒誕的影像,不時在腦海中縈繞、在血脈中亂竄。
