Selected postcards from L20120821-L20120830 (SP)

These ideas are selected from the good amount of notes taken by Pak for the period from 2012/8/21 to 8/30. Titled L20120821-L20120830 (SP), the “L” represents “L notes”, which is a specific type of notes Pak has taken over the years.

In the daily life, Pak takes notes on his notebook anywhere, anytime, be it text or drawings. “I let myself wander in the city or idle at home until I’m quiet enough to hear the faintest trembles in my heart (the responses to my surrounding and people), then I’ll write them down one by one.” (Pak Sheung Chuen, 2011). This publication can be seen as the special edition of the L notes.

L20120821-L20120830 (SP) takes the form of postcard, one can read them, or let these ideas flow with the mind and feelings by other ways.


About Pak Sheung Chuen (白雙全)

Born in 1977 in Fujian, Pak Sheung Chuen immigrated to Hong Kong in 1984 and graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2002, he currently lives and works in Hong Kong.

Pak Sheung Chuen’s practice might be described as immaterial, everyday, process-based, and collaborative. He draws from his daily life experiences in and around Hong Kong to create playful, yet thoughtful, works that upturn ordinary everyday experiences into unexpected surprises and encounters. Although never visually spectacular, Pak’s projects reconfigure a personal system that involves bodily actions and effectively challenges the existing social logic and commodity-based culture. His art is almost invisible, almost impossible to document, but manages to explore the human condition in all its complexities and with loving precision.
