淑芳你好嘛 (Suk-Fong Nay Ho Mah) / Suk-Fong, How Are You? is the final installment of Paul Wong’s year-long residency at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, launched in April 2018. The exhibition runs until February 24, 2019 and will be accompanied by a series of transit shelter art ads, an artist talk, and two workshops.

At the heart of the exhibition is Suk-Fong Wong, the artist’s late mother. Her collections—of letters, of jars of Chinese herbs and homemade medicines—draw us into her life, her experiences. We see how she appropriated old condiment jars as she adapted traditions from her old home into her new one. We hear stories of birthdays, family politics, and shifting cultural and political landscapes in China, giving us insight into private narratives against the backdrop of China’s transformation in the late twentieth century.

Through the framework created by Wong, seemingly mundane activities of daily life inhabit the public space and allow for the reclamation of his Chinese heritage and its disappearing histories and voices.

身在唐人街/Occupying Chinatown is a public art project commissioned by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program in partnership with the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.
