19 August - 17 September 2017 Closing event: Sunday, 17 September 2017, 6:00pm-8:00pm (Please note that there is no opening reception)
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.
Things that can happen x Lawman ＝The ABCs of Law https://www.facebook.com/abcslaw/ The ABCs of Law is an art project organised by Things that can happen and directed by Lawman. In this project Lawman will introduce concepts that significantly influenced his artistic career, as a way of organising his thoughts and communicating to his audience. Though there may be overlaps and even conflicts between concepts, this confusion is also an explanation for his continued quest. Part of the exhibition will be held at Things that can happen, with a few selected concepts, accompanied by related works.
Law Man Lok (aka Lawman), is a freedom-loving dude who enjoys creating things. He believes that (unless he be mistaken) his job should be to transform, through the power of imagination, all the worldly decay into spiritual fragrance. Media being a matter of convenience; it is more about embracing each encounter.
