Details

UK based artist Pak Keung Wan (born Hong Kong 1970) will be in residence at The Art House during July 2017. During his residency the artist will develop a work begun in 2009.

Titled Lune, this work is the ongoing making of 12,000 drawings transfigured from diagrams in a publication by NASA detailing all the solar eclipses over a 5000 year period. This work has provided a starting point for further exploration, articulated through installation, animation and photography.

Pak-Keung Wan works from a drawing-focused practice that incorporates installation, photography, print and performative modes of production. He likens these mediated forms to transitional states where his concerns with process, transmutation, fusion and temporality can become tangible.

The artist completed his M.A. in Fine Art Printmaking, at the Royal College of Art [Henry Moore Scholarship] in 1994. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions and undertaken artist residencies in galleries and museums across the UK, USA and India. A keen interest in science has also seen his drawings shown at the Williamsville Space Lab Planetarium in New York and the Stardome Observatory & Planetarium in Auckland, New Zealand.
