Interview with Lam Yuklin Pauline by Leung Chiwo Warren

In the first part of the interview, artist Lam Yuklin Pauline recounts the debut of her art career after graduating from university, as she developed her works around the theme of life and death (00:00–10:00). The conceptual linkage among Lam’s works is articulated through the use of old and used materials and sculptural forms, as she explains her choice of materials in the interview (10:10–28:18). She stresses the connection among space, existing materials, and the works while creating an installation (28:10–41:00). In the middle of the interview, Lam tells us that she loves the works of a Western artist. She shares her experience in teaching, as well as her analysis of Hong Kong art’s current state of development (42:00–55:12). In the last part of the interview, Lam elaborates on her use of materials and experimentation (55:12–1:16:40).
