C & G藝術單位於2007年由張嘉莉(Clara)及鄭怡敏(阿金)成立。分別以視覺藝術教育及畫廊雙線發展，目標是關注本地的藝術生態，回應社會時事，善用現址環境及空間，集中發展本地新晉藝術，協助培育本地藝術工作者，拓展觀眾，以填充本地藝術圈的灰色地帶和罅隙，期望成為具本地特色的藝術交流中心。過去十三年，C & G藝術單位共策劃超過80項藝術展覽，當中與超過100位本地前線活躍藝術家合作，共同回應香港的社會及文化議題。
C & G (Clara 及 阿金)是藝術組合，他們一貫以嬉笑怒罵的方式進行廣泛類型的藝術創作及活動策劃，並透過與不同單位協作，以探討當代香港的藝術生態及社會、政治時事。曾獲邀參與2018年上海雙年展、2019年新加坡雙年展等重要國際藝術活動。
About C&G (Clara CHEUNG & Gum CHENG):
C&G (Clara CHEUNG & Gum CHENG Yee Man) are two Hong Kong artists who have founded the art space: C&G Artpartment in Hong Kong, in 2007. With a strong concern over the local art ecology, C&G use their art to respond to social and cultural issues. Their essential goal is to fill up the crack in the current art scene, and allow C&G Artpartment becomes an art space for idea exchanges. In the past 14 years, C&G Artpartment has curated more than 100 art exhibitions that included more than 100 local artists to respond to the social and cultural issues in Hong Kong.
The practice of the Hong Kong-based artist group C&G (Clara and Gum) is humourous and challenging at the same time. The activities that C&G organise are often collective and participatory in nature, with a focus on issues surrounding the art ecology of Hong Kong as well as current events. C & G was invited to participate in different important international Art events, such as Shanghai Biennale(2018) and Singapore Biennale(2019) etc., C&G Artpartment has been one of the few artist-run space that pro-actively critiques social and political issues in Hong Kong, and facilitates artists to make critical artworks in response. It believes that a healthy society needs freedom of expression and artistic creativity. The only way to defend such these values is to exercise them with the language of the arts.
On June 30th, 2020, People’s Republic of China imposed National Security Law onto Hong Kong and, thereafter, started massive political persecution that destroyed the space for freedom of speech in Hong Kong. In August 2021, C&G Artpartment had to end its physical space in Hong Kong, and decided to move to the UK in the end of the year, in order to keep fighting for our artistic freedom and to encourage more to make critical art.
Gum was born in Hong Kong. In 1998, Gum completed the social work programme at Hong Kong Polytechnic
University. He graduated with distinction of Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) in Drawing, at RMIT University in 2002. In
2007, Gum received M.A. in Comparative and Public History from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Gum was a member of School Management Committee. He is a registered social worker, part-time lecturer of Hong Kong Art School, founder of C & G Artpartment, Wooferten; chairman of a Hong Kong non-profit art group “Project 226”, chairman of Art Together Limited(charity organization). Since 2000, he has curated more than 100 art exhibitions, educational programme, seminars, exchange programme etc. His curatorial directions mainly criticize politics, social issues and art eco-system. His artworks explore various media, like painting, drawing, performance, stop-motion animation, photography, video and installation.
