The interactive installation Indoor Charcoal Drawing of the REAL Hong Kong Contest by C&G Artpartment in the exhibition ‘Minding the G(r)a(s)p’ invites the audience to practise still life drawing by peeking through holes on the wall. The ‘Off-Shore Still Life Lesson’ is an opportunity for the audience to get up-close and personal with C&G in one on one sessions, both to exchange tips on still life drawing and to just catch up while C&G is overseas. We welcome everyone’s participation to exploit the advantages of online communication to get to know the artists.

About the artists

C&G (Clara CHEUNG; Gum CHENG Yee Man) are two Hong Kong artists who founded the art space C&G Artpartment in Hong Kong in 2007. With a strong concern over the local art ecology, C&G uses their art to respond to social and cultural issues. Their essential goal is to fill up the cracks in the current art scene, and allow C&G Artpartment to become an art space for idea exchange. In the past fifteen years, C&G Artpartment has curated more than 100 exhibitions that included more than 120 local artists to respond to the social and cultural issues in Hong Kong. C&G has participated in various international art events, including the Singapore Biennale (2019) and Shanghai Biennale (2018). C&G Artpartment closed its physical space in Hong Kong in August 2021, and relocated to the United Kingdom in late 2021 to keep fighting for their artistic freedom and to encourage others to make art critically.
