Henry, Chang Yue Lam (b. 1992, Hong Kong)  is based in Hong Kong.

He graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Fine Arts in 2020, received his  Bachelor of Fine Arts (major in Printmaking) from Taipei National University of Arts in 2017 and Associate Degree of Arts (Visual Arts) from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2012. He has obtained the “HKSAR Government Talent Development Scholarship” in 2019,  “2018 Outstanding Art Prize” in 2018,  the first prize of “The 15th Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award” in 2017, “LIAO SHIOU-PING Printmaking Award” in both 2015 and 2017, among others. His significant exhibitions included:  “MAKE _ART NOT WAR [T/F]”, Osage, Hong Kong (2020),  “Matters Toward Incorporeality”,  PMQ, Hong Kong (2020),  “The Opposite Survivors: 1950-1955” &  “Things Changed with Stars Shift”, Hsian Guang Second Village, Taoyuan, Taiwan (2018), “The Labyrinth and Wings”, National Central University Art Center, Taoyuan, Taiwan (2018),  “2018 Outstanding Art Prize - Pings Don’t Fly”, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan (2018), “The 15th Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award”,  Taoyuan Arts Center, Taoyuan, Taiwan (2017), among others.

In his early stage of works, he pays close attention to the human body as an art form and the issues of city spaces. He used his own body as a medium to represent the relationship between the individual and society. He also studies the disciplinary space created by urban planning, to explore the ways of living in a city.

 

By looking back at his past growing experience, in addition to the study in printmaking, his recent works pay extra attention on the essential and contextual printing concept: plurality, indirectness, accuracy, labour production procedure, cultural production, and diffusion of knowledge. After his redefinition of “Print and Making Art”, his works usually appear with a form of printmaking installation. He always combines printmaking with different crossed-media in his creation while trying to push the perspective and boundary of contemporary printmaking even further.  He developed his own unique "Quantification" art language. This language of creation is to insinuate an accurate and duplicate production process in labouring operation.

With his research-based art practice, the recent works expressed serious concern on his questions of Hong Kong culture such as printing-cultural production, identity, land relationship, etc.. His creative method of cultural studies combined with artistic production is expected to develop an alternative printmaking art practice. Through the intensive research, he creates works by the use of archive and history documents in social, political, economical  and cultural aspects. Looking through the name of civilisation and modernisation, information monitoring is usual while a set of homogenised ideologies and grand narratives is afoot. His art creation is to excavate the fading, neglected, or disappeared among marginal voices to reconstruct, recreate and reinterpret the subjectivity of contemporary culture.
