Aaron Lam Kwok-yam
Around 7% of the molecules in our body are renewed every day, and all of them will be rebuilt over a period of around two weeks. This continuous renewal reflects the body’s need for flow through biological mechanisms.

In the processes of continuous organization, metabolism, responsiveness, movement, and reproduction, the cells of neurons are the most minimally updated compared to other internal organs.
Inspired by such biological facts, Aaron Lam Kwok-yam has created an installation in the upcoming exhibition “Neuron” presenting his ongoing practice on the themes of lived conditions and emotional entanglements.

“Neuron” will review the reflexive relationships and connections between materials and bodies, and look into the sensitive and fragile nature of the human mind. With his growing interest in exploring the relationships established between his works in the exhibition space, Lam Kwok-yam has chosen to directly intervene with the Art Center Ongoing Gallery’s internal architecture, his installation visibly flowing through the exhibition space and emphasizing its lines and structures.
