TANG Kwong San 鄧廣燊

簡介 Biography

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.

鄧廣燊在中國出生,童年時移居香港。二零一九年取得由澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學與香港藝術學院合辦之藝術文學士學位,主修繪畫。作品結合照片、素描和錄像來追索家族記憶與社會歷史。透過錯置的手法重組不同時序的物件,記錄與家人的緊密聯繫和自身的缺失與渴望。

I use mechanical pencil as my tool to sketch, and I transfer the image of the reality onto the paper by hardly scratching the paper. I want to do it fast but realise that the process takes time.

我選擇鉛芯筆這個機械,盡力地在紙本刮上現實的投影,想快但很慢。

A twisted, moldy blue negative.
I was looking for my mother’s trace, my father layered plaster onto my face.
The distance between my father and I was very closed.

‘Black in color, very heavy, but it heats up.’ I felt.

一張扭曲,發霉的藍色底片。
我在尋找母親的痕跡,父親把石膏疊上我的臉。
閉上雙眼躺下,我們的距離很近。

黑色、很重,但熱了起來。
