Cross and Transfer: Bookmaking Workshop with Doreen Chan

Time |
10am-5pm
Location |
Room 03-206, Barrack Block
Price |
Free of charge

Drawing from Tai Kwun Contemporary’s Artists’ Book Library collection of Asian works, “Cross and Transfer” uses methods of reproduction, appropriation, and transformation in making an artist book. Skewing traditional models of original authorship using low-fi methods of production such as a copy machine and accessible materials for booking-binding, this workshop will examine what it means to cite other artists, and to physically show what inspires an artist in the creative process. Following the rubric of Under-Cover, “cross” here can be read as “cross examination” or using intuition in guiding the reading of artists’ books, and “transfer” indicates the conveying of ideas. During the workshop, participants will observe the comings and goings at Tai Kwun to draw materials for their book. As a photo-based practitioner who works in the expanded formats of sculpture and book making, Doreen Chan will lead a workshop which will result in each participant producing their own artist book. 

This workshop is designed for participants between the ages of 12 and 16. 


Doreen Wing Yan Chan (b. 1986, Hong Kong) received training in visual communication and photography. Chan’s artistic practices focus on the investigations of perception, materiality, and daily details that are often overlooked. Key elements in her works include interpersonal relationship, personal memories, and fragmentary moments of daily life in the city. As a lens-based and site-specific artist, Chan believes that images are merely the raw materials. She integrates images with various media to explore the dynamics that lie in the intricacies of the quotidian environment. Chan has had solo exhibition at Lianzhou Foto Festival 2013 (Lianzhou, China), Kigoja (Seoul, South Korea), Charbon (Hong Kong, China) and HB Station: Contemporary Art Research Centre (Guangzhou, China). She has also exhibited her works in , Gwangju (South Korea), Beijing, Macau, Hong Kong (China), New York (US) and several cities in the UK. Chan was one of finalists in Three Shadows Photography Award in 2015. Chan currently lives in Hong Kong and Chicago.
