    Kwan Sheung Chi, Wong Wai Yin
    Everything Goes Wrong for the Poor Couple, 2010

Kwan Sheung Chi (b. 1980) and Doris Wong Wai Yin (b. 1981) both live and work in Hong Kong. Kwan Sheung Chi’s oeuvre has long mixed a certain meditative strain with a participatory engagement or at the very least a sense of social responsibility. In certain works, there has also a reflection on the connections between finance and politics (for example in “To Defend the Core Values Is the Core of the Core Values”, by Kwan Sheung Chi and Doris Wong, where the production budget was cast into a gold coin, reflecting on as well as intervening in the debate then on “core values” of Hong Kong). In many ways, Kwan Sheung Chi works in a conceptual way—artworks that can be described as instructions and be executed by anyone—but moreover within a practice grounded in a particular culture and place. In 2013, Kwan Sheung Chi won the inaugural Hugo Boss Asia Art award.
