Polam Chan (b.1998) was born and lived in Hong Kong. Polam’s practice revolves around how one views society, through human interactions/emotions, to social and political issues. Frequently focus/ reference on his home city, Hong Kong’s matter.

 

Boundaries, propaganda, media manipulation, and barriers blockages to people physically and mentally. Polam often views subjects from a distant prospect, setting the information, data, and ideas for our interpretation. His works exist in both tangibles and digital.

 

Polam’s practice shifts dramatically due to his circumstances and occurrences. His work portrays the experiences/ issues in the world to formulate inquiries. Polam generates conversations and confronts the audience with ideas one would not easily conceive by living in the system.

 

Simultaneously Polam’s practice contains living beings, nature & material, and society fragilities. Showcasing the limitation and uncertainty by fragile works.
