I am Lee Chun Fung, artist based in Hong Kong. Now we are in „Woofer Ten“ which is a community
artspace in Yaumatei in Kowloon.
I do a lot of things. I do my art, sometimes curating, I am also a core member of this artspace
„Woofer Ten“. I have the duty of many things: the space and holding the group, the collective.
I am involved in many many different kinds of aspects of work. Even sometimes in curating or even
education … and also here in Hong Kong, we have been concerned so much which social issues, so
I am involved a lot in social movements as well. I do different aspects of work, but I would still
consider myself as an artist.
My training is an artist’s training. So, I think this kind of training made me have a stronger sense for
how to generate people’s perception to think about … to generate some feeling. In this platform we
can communicate with different people. Those skills I learned from art school made me more
effective or more capable to communicate in this way I think.
It also made me think art is more like a universal skill. I can apply this thinking in photography, also I
can apply this thinking in education or when I participate in a social movement. No one got trained
in a social movement, I think. Most people are self-learned. There’s maybe no need to train. We learn
Maybe everyone can be an artist. But you have to be aware that you are doing art.
I think artists are have more sensibility to make people think or to generate dialogue. And being an
artist maybe is a life form, naturally. It is a life form you choose. It is more than just the term „I make
art“ and everything is art and you are an artist. But if you think a life form as an artist, your value and
your status are important.
