PS

May 12 - June 18
Kong Chun Hei

WHAT
The Hong Kong artist (b. 1987) has cultivated an artistic practice galvanised by his keen, unperturbed sense of observation. His work examines everyday objects and their inherent forms, while exposing varying nuances in the relationship between the object and the context where it is found. In January 2023, Para Site invited the artist to become an artist-in-residence by occupying the 10th floor space as a temporary studio to elaborate on the ‘Studio + Archive Project’, an initiative established between 2021 and 2022.

Please note that the exhibition takes place at Para Site’s newly expanded space on the 10/F of its current building.

WHY
The exhibition uses ‘PS’ (as in ‘post script) to challenge the norms and create new ways of producing art, as the artist thinks the acronym offers new ways to think about the main text, as he explores parts of daily life that people usually don’t question. For example, the use of reclaimed materials in the commissioned installation, ‘Stairs’ (2023), reinforces this theme of disrupting the status quo. The piece creates a passage between two previously separated rooms, symbolising the connection between the gallery’s newly-expanded 10th floor space and its existing 22nd floor space.
