On the occasion of Trevor Yeung's first solo exhibition 'Soft breath' at Para Site, the artist has created a photograph of the ‘Fuck Tree’. The ‘fuck tree’ is an infamous natural landmark for a historic cruising area in London’s Hampstead Heath. Differing from the other trees of this ancient heath, the tree has cultivated a particularly intimate relationship with humans as the centre of nocturnal gatherings since the nineteenth century.

Trevor Yeung (b. 1988 in Guangdong; lives and works in Hong Kong) uses botanic ecology, horticulture, and aquarium systems as metaphors for emancipation from the expectations inherent in human relationships. Yeung draws inspiration from intimate and personal experiences, culminating in works that range from image-based works to large-scale installations. Yeung had his first institutional solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, ‘Soft ground’, at Gasworks, London, in 2023. He was nominated for the Sigg Prize 2023. In 2024, Yeung will represent Hong Kong at the 60th Venice Biennale.


此攝影作品由楊沛鏗為其於Para Site藝術空間的首次個展而創作。影像中的「啪啪樹」位於倫敦漢普斯特德荒野一處歷史悠久的同性巡行尋歡勝地。林中唯有此樹自十九世紀便是夜間密會的集中地,與人類建立了親密的關係,成為一個天然地標。

楊沛鏗(1988年生於廣東;現生活並工作於香港)以植物生態、園藝及水族系統隱喻人與人之間的寄望,並從中尋求解放。由圖像至大型裝置,楊氏自私密體驗中汲取靈感,發展其創作實踐。2023年,他在倫敦Gasworks藝術空間舉行了他在英國的首場個展「Soft ground」,並成為該年希克獎的入圍藝術家之一。2024年,楊氏將代表香港參加第60屆威尼斯雙年展。
