In Cantonese, “Saan Dung” means “mountain cave”, and “Gei” means notes or chronicles. Conceived as a visual reader and a long-form novel, Lam Tung Pang’s first solo exhibition “Saan Dung Gei” consists of non-linear chapters that describe the allegorical journey of an itinerant traveler. The exhibition features Lam’s latest works made in 2018-2019, with which the artist challenges his own medium and creates a three-dimensional medley of paintings, installations, video sculptures, kinetic projection, and found objects.
“Saan Dung Gei” is curated by Abby Chen as an independent curatorial collaboration. The two have worked together previously on Lam Tung Pang’s solo exhibition, “Curiosity Box”, at the Chinese Cultural Center in San Francisco, USA, in 2013.
