Law Man Lok
Aug 19 – Sep 17
This last exhibition at Things that can happen, bringing the two-year experiment to a close, is a collaboration between Things and Law Man Lok (Lawman). It is a solo exhibition without resembling one. While spending slight effort in formulating a concept for the project under the pretence of his babysitting, Lawman nonetheless takes the opportunity to reconsider all the thoughts accumulated in his creative career, summarised in the form of ABCs (as in foundation). In this way, this “exhibition” becomes a site for Law’s scattered-brain, the landscape garden showcasing an inventory of the conceptual foundations for his creation. Well — due to certain restrictions, the landscape garden may not be quite complete, and Lawman asks your pardon, while he casually turns a thought or two into something.
Conceived by Lee Kit and Chantal Wong, ‘Things that can happen’ is a non-profit art space located in the historic district of Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, in the heart of Hong Kong. Opening in September 2015, ‘Things’ aims to provide a platform for open experimentation and dialogue in response to the rapidly changing cultural and political context of our city.
