A day of two Suns (2019)
is an ensemble of plywood mountain sculptures and found objects staged around a large paper screen, upon which looping videos are projected on either side. These ever-shifting assemblages of faded, seemingly still videos, which depict panoramic sights in Hong Kong, reflect Lam Tung Pang’s memories of his home. Our bodies cast shadows upon the screen, as do the assorted objects—obscuring these memories and evoking a scattered recollection of the disappearing past. The materials, motifs, and overall composition all reference classical Chinese landscape painting, in which Lam was trained.
With its interplay of movement and stillness, the work captures a moment between two worlds. This immersive, dreamlike landscape invites us to experience a coexistent state of being within the intersection of light and dark, far and near, illusion and matter, past and present—alluding to the paradoxical reality of post-handover Hong Kong.
