The Making of New Territories / 2012
In The Making of New Territories, Enoch Cheung continues to develop his “light painting” technique utilised in his Secret Dialogue: About Children Hospital series. However, he turns away from the psychical tension of forbidden interior spaces, and expands his gaze towards outdoor landscapes and public spaces, capturing the chiaroscuro of twilight zones suspended between inactivity and activity, ruralism and urbanisation, abandon and repurposing.
Secret Dialogue: About Children Hospital / 2009
Cheung is a conceptual artist with practice ranges from photography, video, mixed media artwork to installation. Having connected emotionally to hospital due to his past working experience, he started his early series Secret Dialogue: About Children Hospital comprising photographs and a video while he was studying in London. Cheung adopted the method ‘light painting’ to illuminate different spots of the site in the dark. He has recently extended this approach to create his new series The Making of New Territories. In 2011, Cheung published his artist book “Secret Dialogue” in an alternative format.
West Kowloon Walled City / 2007
Enoch Cheung’s West Kowloon Walled City is a piece of photographic mixed-media work exploring the constantly and rapidly morphing coastline of Hong Kong. The densely populated luxury residential buildings situated at the West Kowloon recall a familiar scene once existed until the early 90s in the darkest part of Kowloon. West Kowloon Walled City was one of the nominated artworks for the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards 2009.
