LEE KAI CHUNG
LEE Kai Chung performs artistic research on historical events, political systems, and ideology. His work addresses the lack of proper governance over the records and forms of historiography. Through research, social participation, and engagement, Lee considers the individual gesture as a form of political and artistic transgression, which resonates with existing narratives of history.
In 2017, Lee initiated a pentalogy of projects that are under the notion of “Displacement and Diaspora” – to take departure from the socio-historical implication under the Pan-Asia context, the series examines human dispersion, material circulation, and their geopolitical relations. The first in the series, The Retrieval, Restoration, and Predicament (2017-19) examines the material and ideological transition of public statues in Hong Kong; the second, The Narrow Road to the Deep Sea (2019-20), scrutinizes human displacement in Hong Kong and Guangdong during the Imperial Japanese Occupation that led to the notorious Nanshitou Incident. The rest of the series are as follows: the third: The Longing Park (2020-22); the fourth: Infinite Train (2020-23); the final: Exile (2020 – 2030).
