Oscar Chan


at Things That Can Happen

Sum Raised: 32,050 HKD


The third YCC collective funding project was in support of Oscar Chan’s residency and first solo show at Things that can happen (Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong).

Oscar was in residency at Things that can happen since February 2017. He pushed himself out of his comfort zone, delving deeper into the relationship between the external world and the darkness within all of us, and the continuous psychological creation of one through the other. From 29 April, Oscar sealed himself into the galleries of the space, daily habits fitting into the corners of the rooms, cutting himself off from our mediatised world, and engaged with the energies, shadows and voices that the site compels. As an obsessive observer of his internal state, it was intended that the oppressive confines of Things that can happen may call new demons to surface only to make way for a new experience of himself, the world and the Things that can happen.

This fundraising campaign was the most ambitious to date, aiming to collectively raise HKD 23,000. With the generous donations from YCC members and supporters we hit our target within three days of the campaign ending and reached a sum beyond our goal ultimately raising HKD 32,050.
