Hosted by Cusson Cheng (Project Manager/Assistant Curator, Para Site)


As part of the public programmes for ‘Noble Rot’ Part Two, Para Site will organise three virtual artist sharing sessions live on Zoom, where participating artists will share their practices, focusing on the works they contributed to the exhibition. The first session in English will be a conversation with artists Chung Wing Shan, Hong Wah, and Tam Rafael Vun Kwan, in which they will give an in-depth view of their respective works spanning video, installation, and sculpture exploring spatiality, urban development, sound, and a sense of loss. The session will be moderated by Cusson Cheng, one of the four organisers of the exhibition.

About the artists

Chung Wing Shan

Chung Wing Shan (b. 1996, Hong Kong) formed Po-po-Post Arts Group in the same year of her graduation. She believes artists working as collectives create a sense of camaraderie in the artmaking process, and that art should reflect its surrounding world and society. She is interested in the issues of borders, boundaries, and the power of space in Hong Kong, and wishes to explore the place and its history in her practice.


Hong Wah

Through his multidisciplinary work in drawing, video, and installation, Hong Wah (b. 1999, Hong Kong) reflects on the relationship between drawing and ink, and the development of video as a tool for social media influencers. Elements of Chinese calligraphy and painting, such as form and passing of time, can be found in his work. In 2019 he curated the group exhibition ‘ – – : – – : – -‘ at Hui Gallery in New Asia College. He was awarded both the Grotto Fine Art Award and the Wucius Wong New Ink Art Award in 2021. 


Tam Rafael Vun Kwan

Tam Rafael Vun Kwan’sartistic practice ranges across sculpture, video, text, sound, and installation. He draws inspiration from the ghosts of society and objects he encounters. He has participated in exhibitions and performances in Hong Kong including ‘Sound Forms’, Contemporary Musiking and Tai Kwun Contemporary (2020); ‘Play. Boredom.Worship.’, Tomorrow Maybe (2019); ‘New Babylon’, Prsntprsnt (2019); and ‘Sincerity Machine’, Twenty Alpha (2019).
