TANG Kwong San 鄧廣燊
Tang Kwong San was born in China and now lives in Hong Kong. He received his Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) degree, co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School, in 2019, major in painting. His practice combines photographs, drawings, objects and video that trace intergenerational family memories and social history. Through reorganizing and reinterpreting old belongings, family photo albums and documents in a range of media, Tang explores the subtle, intricate and complex connections between the notions of longing, loss and belonging.
